Oh, no! It's the summer of 1983 and Sports Illustrated presents this horrible scenario: The Montreal Expos might win the National League pennant and the Toronto Blue Jays are threatening to win the American League flag. Brace yourselves. This would mean (gasp!) an all-Canadian World Series! We can't have that! (Luckily for xenophobic American baseball fans, neither the Expos or the Jays won the pennant that year. Whew! That's a relief!)

I posted this earlier to one of Jimmy Jet's postings. I wasn't sure if all of you have seen it, so here is my tribute to Bruce, aka Jimmy Jet. I'm posting a picture of his favorite toy. The Jimmy Jet toy is that big blue toy sitting on top of a box.
Hello All,It has been a while since I've been on here and I come with some bad news. Jimmy Jet whose real name is Bruce, passed away on June 29, 2008 and now is in the arms of the Lord. Bruce became a penpal of mine after I bought a few items from him on ebay. We both had an interest in old Toys and Jimmy Jet was one of his favorite toys! His parts helped complete my Jimmy Jet and I will truly miss him. I urged him to sign up on this site and he commented many times how much he liked it. He was an avid aviation buff and now he can freely fly the friendly skies of heaven! Rest in Peace Bruce, you will be missed.

Once we were proud nation.. there was nothing we couldn't do, or accomplish.
There was noting that we couldn't manufacture for ourselves. This was the American Spirit. It was what made this country the envy of every nation in the world.
Now, as one TV commentator put it, "We have become suicidally arrogant ... we have the attitude that there isn't anything anyone won't sell us."
It has been argued that "America holds no resemblance to the once great nation for which our forebears fought and died. Given the rapidity with which America has forsaken its heritage, can you imagine what it will look like 50 years from now?" - Chuck Baldwin
Once can only wonder. But, Once Upon A Time In America, it was truly a great and promising place to be.
