All roads lead to Rome


The International Road Transport Union is threatening to leave Rome off its list of stops next year if the Eternal City goes ahead with restrictions on tour buses during next year's Jubilee 2000.

Talk about being one fare short of a full bus. Rome is getting ready to put out the welcome mat for 20 million visitors next year. They're coming to celebrate Christianity and Catholicism at its very epicenter.

History should make it pretty clear that when people decide to take a trip in the name of religion, they're pretty hard to stop. Does the union really think that millions of would-be pilgrims will stand still for having their destination removed from itineraries across the continent?

I know how I feel when the bus driver misses my stop, and I'm just heading for work. Can you imagine how these folks will react?
