Memo to Amby Burfoot

Memo to Runner's World snob in residence, editor Amby Burfoot (who recently pooh-poohed Ryan Hall's chances to win the Boston Marathon): Yes We Can!
American skier Kikkan Randall nabs a Silver Medal at the World Championships, the first ever for a US woman and 2nd ever, ever (last one was Bill Koch in 1983).

This is on the heels of a Gold by Lindsey Van in women's ski jumping (a new event), 2 Golds from Todd Lodwick and a Bronze from Billy Demong in nordic combined (ski jumping and xc skiing). Meanwhile, Kris Freeman took a wonderful but heartbreaking 4th (missing Bronze by 1.3 sec) in the 15K classic.
With relays coming up, there could be more medals.
