In One Ear: It doesn’t ring true

In One Ear: It doesn’t ring true

Astorian Dan Sealy sent in a puzzling little tidbit from CNN’s travel section, an article with the title “Best U.S. movie locations to visit” (http://tinyurl.com/ringastoria). Of course it wasn’t the least bit puzzling that Astoria is on the list of 10 “best,” what boggles the mind is that it’s mentioned because of “Ring 2,” which was filmed here in 2005.

Huh? Who even remembers “Ring 2?” When you think of how many people are fans of “The Goonies,” and who consider Astoria practically hallowed ground because it was filmed here, “Ring 2” sure seems like an odd choice to represent Astoria’s charms. That writer needs his truffles shuffled.
