And there is nothing new under the sun

as the canal extended from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh
this was a method to get the boats over the Allegany mountains
in central Pa. They would roll them on to fixtures and raise them 
... now the boats were smaller and the power was horses but it worked
till the railroads
took over and replaced the whole mess


"everything you know is wrong."
as my wife Judy (a PhD Slavic Socio-Linguist and
long-time student of all things Russian) said,
"You can do a lot when you don't have to care how much it costs."
ps - Don't ask Judy what she thinks of Condi Rice's
Russian scholarship unless you want a real earful.
