I count 4 prior messages posted so far on this issue, which does not
seem excessive given the complexity of the situation. However, those
who have no interest in this topic can utilise their "delete" key when
they see the "Subject" line.
For the rest of us, my thought is that 1812 reenacting is and has to
be a joint U.S. - Canadian effort, with major venues and events on
both sides of the Border, and major groups based in each country. As
1812 re-enactors, the Border can be a pain in the butt to be endured
as we venture over it to join *our comrades* in events designed to
remember the War of 1812, honour its heroes (and rogues, even), and
educate the public about it. But since the fact there *is* a border
is perhaps the greatest single result of the War of 1812, I guess it's
something we have to live with! ;>)
Yes, many list members, including myself, live in Canada, but what
goes on in the U.S. on issues that directly affect 1812 reenacting is
of great relevance to us as well. I too do not want to have to shout
out "bang!" unless I have to. As a Canadian, I may not be able to put
my comments on the OSHA website - but I do want to know how this
important issue plays out. I think most list members feel the same.
In short, messages that provide new information on this topic are
definitely not "spam" or anything close to it. Please keep'em coming!
