He had a 1.2% rejection rate and he's packing it in over that?

Perhaps some folks need a few problems in their life to realize how good they have things.

I guess I will never understand this. JM is indeed a great photographer and has been blessed to have photos from places that many here can only dream of visiting.....and some places I'd be scared to death to visit. People love his work. 38,000 favorites, 4,600 comments, 50 PCAs. Where's the need to do stuff like this?

Chris, I think you're the Paul Harvey of To quote the late News Anchor Paul Harvey:

"And now you know.....THE REST of the story......."

My RP stuff is here.

Link to my Flickr Albums. Lots of Steam Railroad stuff there from all over the US.
