    This photo may confirm your claim. Incidentally that is a woman "manning" that steam cleaner wand. The caption reads: "Mrs. Viola Sievers, one of the wipers at the roundhouse giving a giant "H" class locomotive a bath of live steam. Clinton, Iowa, April 1943. Reproduction from color slide. Photo by Jack Delano. Prints and Photographs Division, Library of Congress" One of thousands of jobs women assumed when their husbands went off to fight the war.

        I thought the same thing, Dave. Welcome back, Kotter...er, Lark. BP

        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        Ayn Rand:
        "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

        G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
