"Pardon me boy, is that the Chickenhawk Escape train?"


          

Track 61
You all can die while I run.

--snip--

During President Bush’s two-day stay this week at the ritzy Waldorf-Astoria in New York — where he was seeking international support for the U.S. resolution on Iraq — a special escape train was idling beneath the hotel, ready to whisk him to safety at a moment’s notice in the event of a terrorist attack, it was reported Friday.

THE SECRET SERVICE arranged for the Metro-North train to be parked at an abandoned platform, always running and ready for instant departure throughout the president’s stay at the hotel on Tuesday and Wednesday, the New York Post reported, quoting unidentified law enforcement sources.
The platform — identified as Track 61 on Grand Central Terminal blueprints — is accessible by an underground passage from inside the landmark hotel and by a freight elevator that descends from a brass-sheathed door next to the hotel’s parking garage, giving the president and his entourage a second egress route in case of emergency, the Post said. Had that occurred, the train would have sped off to an undisclosed secure location, it said.

It was a quote by Elbert Hubbard. It's an old quote, but it sure fits to a T today.

"A conservative is a man who is too cowardly to fight and too fat to run."

That should be Limbaugh's sig

Heh ... I actually know who Elbert Hubbard was, having endured six long years in Buffalo, New York! Haven't heard him quoted in years. All hail to East Aurora.

Thanks for the fantastic link!

I've got a very old Roycrofters somewhere around the house. It's called, "The American Bible" and is a collection of quotes divided into chapters by the likes of Hubbard, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and Clarence Darrow, to name a few.

The quote I posted today I got out of one of my favorite books, "The Heretic's Handbook of Quotations", by Charles Bufe, published by See Sharp Press

Your link made my day! Thanks again, Samela!
