    Awww come on...but why is it a necessity? (Again, I know why but I want to hear what other people think).

    As for the WA Meet, I think that is just going to be some sort of small informal regional thing for people to do. I know I wouldn't consider a meeting anywhere west of Chicago, south of Nashville, north of Detroit, or east of Philly. I probably wouldn't even attend one unless it was within 2-3 hours and attendance was guaranteed to be somewhat respectable.

    Actually, you are quite mistaken on this issue. A poll here finds that Americans support war in Iraq 2-to-1. However, if you only listen to/watch the liberal press, then you wouldn't know otherwise.

    Why should the government prop up a failing company like Amtrak? If they can't find a way to make money from their current situation, then somebody else can. When all of the airlines were losing large amounts of money post-9/11, JetBlue was well in the black. They know how to run a company. Maybe Amtrak needs new leadership, new vision, a new marketing firm, but the first thing you think they need is money from the government. :loony: If they're not making money because not enough people want to ride Amtrak, then that just sucks. I guess they're in the wrong business, then. Find a way to make money or sell your company to someone who can. This is capitalist society, not a socialist one. If you like socialism, then go to Canada or France or any of a number of other countries where you'll pay 20% in sales tax, and 80% of your income will go to the government for crappy healthcare and shoddy services.

    Let's keep this thread on-topic and non-political, or it will be moved to the Roaming Zone. :D

    Matt, I think this thread does belong in the off topic forum and so it shall be moved there.

    Oh.

    It sucks, becuase a train is a really cool way to see the country, and it is a shame that they are trying to get rid of them... :mad:

    Yeah, it is cool IMO to take a train, since you can see the country, instead of some person in front of you putting their seat all the way back, and then you don't have enough leg room for 2-3 hours... :lol:

    Actually the last time I was on a plan was about 9 years ago when I wasn't as tall, so I had enough leg room. I wouldn't mind taking a train trip, but the closest train is in Denver and doesn't go anywhere I want to. :(

    Well, you're pretty far away from me. That would have been a long drive for a meet :D

    You can't complain - the Avs have a couple Cups already in their 9 years in Denver. I'm on a 28 year drought....I don't remember the Flyers winning the Cup (74 and 75) - only 5 losses in the Finals in the years since then (76, 80, 85, 87, 97) :banghead:

    Yeah I guess your right I am just so used to seeing the Avs win :biggrin: at least the wings are out too Vegas might be a good compromise although you would still have the longer drive. I may have to pull for the Flyers this year cause I don’t really care for any teams left in the west.

    Cool! I was born in Philly, but my father joined the Army and we moved when I was just over one year old. He had lived in Philly all his life though, so I grew up liking the Flyers. :D

    You went to Tech for grad school huh? How did you like Lubbock? I'd say the 3 days I visited Lubbock while I was living in San Antonio were about 2.5 days too many. :)

    ILUVSOCALIt's a neccessity, that's all I will say Now, I think we need to get back to Larry's original idea, and come up with some more ideas on a WA meet Speaking of colleges though, my dad and I (along with several relatives) are proud Almuni of Idaho State University in Pocatello

    It's was me who started the topic NOT Larry :) :lol: :highclap:

    Also a vegas vacation sounds like a GREAT idea :)

    And the Dodgers and Padres aren't doing all that bad either. SoCal is suddenly the home to 3 first place baseball teams.

    Well, being from Philly, it took some getting used to life in west Texas. I should say it would have been an adjustment anywhere I went - less of one I guess if it was a big city like the Metromess or SA.

    Other than it being in the middle of nowhere :hmm: I actually did like the city, and the people were great. I'd move back if it were on the east coast

    Yeah, the people there did seem nice. And the views of Colorado, New Mexico, and Dallas aren't bad. :p The total isolation was a bit much for me too, and I wasn't even there very long.

    Lol my dad went to college there for a bit when he first came to the States from Germany with my mom in the 70s. He also never forgets having been there since he fell down some stairs while not paying to attention to where he was going and he broke his foot.

    Dude, the Lakers looked SICK. I couldn't watch it. They looked OLD. And they got schooled by a buncha friggin' TEXANS.

    Yes sadly it's true. It's over for them. I even predicted they would get swept by SA this round.

    Just now read-through this forum. That actually sounds pretty fun. I think the owner of WA sould get a booth at the next CTIA convention and invite all of us to go there. Then we can have those cheesy polo shirts and if you're a senior member you get your name embroidered on it and if your a mod you get hat, too lol :p.
