The headlines are going to read: Model Railroaders Solve World's
Problems! For those of you who haven't been reading every new post on
the thread: "Toronto Convention - Update from the organisers" boy have
you missed out.
You people ought to be thankful this debate occurred here because they
did it! They actually solved the problems of the world! I know, I'm
completely amazed too but they actually accomplished their mission of
solving the world's problems, right here on our little newsgroup. It
pulled my heart strings the other day when Bush and Jacques Chirac
hugged after hearing Procter's poignant arguments. Made me proud to be
a model railroader.
An open request to all the skeptics who questioned why the topic of
world politics was on this newsgroup: In the future when the topic
goes from a model railroad convention to world politics will you
please just let the professionals on this newsgroup handle it please?
Their work needs to be done.
If only we had model railroad newsgroups throughout history there
might not have been such tragedies as the American Civil War, the
attack on Pearl Harbor, and New Coke.
