    Yes, we do agree that choosing to introduce children to racing by giving them a role on the grid is an excellent one.

    But no, the point is not exactly moot, as you say, due to us all agreeing the current action is a positive one.



    I'm reminded of an old story...

    There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the fence.

    The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily, gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally, the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pulls out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.

    The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said “you have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.”

    Moral: You can put a knife in a person and draw it out. It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there.

      My intent was to indicate that I felt that the point wasn't really worth debating or discussing, mainly because it would be impossible to determine whether or not the second portion was in fact the second of a planned two part action or a later reaction to the initial act's varied reception.
      Not a direct reversal as in the nail/temper parable. But the parable's point is undeniable, all actions are irreversible no matter what follows.
      Put more poetically:

      "The moving finger writes; and, having writ, moves on: nor all thy piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line, nor all thy tears wash out a word of it."
