Märklin ~ Challenging Days In Model Trainsville
Word has just come to me of bankruptcy declaration by my favorite toymaker -- Märklin -- a giant in the field of model trains. Since I was five years old I've played with their product and it inspired my interest in engineering and more. Here's the evidence: DIY play with Dad! I hope that the madness and uncertainty and turmoil that are today's economies and financial markets don't inadvertently kill the very stuff that makes us human -- culture, history, legacy, creativity, joy, and more. Let's hope Märklin makes it through these troubles.
