    Guy's I dont want to be a wet blanket, but I think the "blonde bimbo"
    theme has about run its course. :rolleyes:

    After all, this is The Gauge. This kind of stereotyping is not what
    we are known for. We have always represented diversity, tolerance,
    and a less provincial approach to social issues, when they arise, and
    I am proud to be a part of it. :thumb:

    The original report was probably more accurate than not, if the truth
    were known. ;) ;) My opinion is, if the shoe fits, wear it!! :p :p

    This lady must have something going for her; after all, she was hired by
    a national company to represent them on television. Reckon she has a
    degree in journalism? It's more than I have. :cry: :cry:

    Let's talk trains, anyhow :D :D :D Hope I'm not stirrin' up anything, it's just my opinion ...

    Ray M.'s remark about George Bush has led me to wonder ....has there ever been a U.S. President who was an active mrrer ? Or admitted as such ? Just curious . Heck , I'd have voted for him just for that ! Of course , being Canadian I can't vote over there anyhow .......

    I did a few different searches - there doesn't seem to be any presidents that were Model Railroaders. :( But that might simply mean that they didnt have the time or money for a hobby like this. Most governor's & Senators travel a lot & also give a bunch of their money back to the party :( :( and a lot of our Presidents were Governors or Senators before they ran for President. I dont think any President in the 20th Century had time for trains :( I'd really like to know now :) :)

    But that raises another question.... "IF" there are any presidents that were MRrrs - I wonder if the Secret Service just watched them work on their layouts, or helped them :) :)

    Well, as I recall, most presidents in the 19th and early 20th centuries all played with full-scale trains,:thumb: just like the ones that followed all like to play with full-scale jet planes, :cool: especially the current Mr. Bush. His predecessor however, just liked to play around... :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
