The Business at Hand >> Slow down, be courteous and enjoy the summer

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Traffic heading into Ocean City across the new bridge and causeway was heavy on Saturday, but given the glorious sunshine, the backup on the first weekend of summer was not unbearable.

What a clever path followed by the owner of Linda’s Gifts on the boardwalk in reaction to negative comments about the shop’s prominent public display of risqué T-shirts, which many see as inappropriate in “America‘s Greatest Family Resort.” He has managed to make others dealing with those comments look a little inept while garnering publicity of a type that will appeal to those in the market for that sort of T-shirt.
