Our population? Comp.dcom.telecom users?

Pat, you're a star!

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: No, its not the number of
C.D.T. readers! I could only wish that were so. It is 'merely' the
estimated population of the USA as of 7:30 AM Tuesday morning. And
those same authorities claim we will reach 400+ million population in
a lot less time than the 39 years it took to reach 300. As more and
more Americans reach the age to begin breeding (or doing whatever
nature tells them to do -- thank God there are many of us who are not
'that way') -- the stats will go topsy-turvy and we -- or rather those
of you who plan on sticking around a couple more generations at least
-- will find more of us in prison, and considerably more of us per
mile (on average, 84 per mile now), and more of us waiting for trains
and busses in the morning than at present. As for me, I expect to be
gone sometime soon, and when it does happen, it won't be a minute too
soon for me! But thanks for the laugh today! PAT]
