Al's comments on Jack White's writings as "sterile" refers to style, not content. IMHO, directly or indirectly, Jack's works have set the standard in this field that we all are now accepting.
The comment on the substantive serious contributions that model railroad publication writings are making to the course of history is quite perceptive. This is one of the very root reasons why serious railroad museums are increasingly catering to model railroaders.
