    Ah, could be. I guess I just always think of Germans as being efficient. Italians not so much. Thanks for the correction

    It turns out he didn't either...snopes.com: Mussolini and On Time Trains

    and there is also this..."Italy has a reputation for not doing things on time. Germany does. The idea about Mussolini was that he supposedly got the trains to run on time by making those responsible live in fear. So the point of saying that Mussolini made the trains run on time is to point out that the ends may not justify the means.

    In Germany, the trains run on time with few exceptions for weather. No reign of fear required. Its a cultural thing. Hitler had no positive impact there. Starting a war probably worked against them running on time since allied fighters tended to shoot up engines and rolling stock when returning home from escorting bombers. "

    History lesson of the day...sorry Paula getting sidetracked here.

    I am in awe of teachers and the knowledge they possess and are able to pass on to, often, uninterested souls.
