    Default More and more working horses -- coming to a city street near you ;^)

    It is nothing short of the dawn of a renaissance, one that is long overdue...

    "And one day when the oil barons have all dripped dry
    and the nights are seen to draw colder
    They'll beg for your strength, your gentle power
    your noble grace and your bearing

    Bring me a wheel of oaken wood
    A rein of polished leather
    A heavy horse and a tumbling sky
    Brewing heavy weather.

    In these dark towns folk lie sleeping
    as the heavy horses thunder by
    to wake the dying city
    with the living horseman's cry
    At once the old hands quicken ---
    bring pick and wisp and curry comb ---
    thrill to the sound of all
    the heavy horses coming home."

    They could... you'd just have to have a very large keyboard, and they would be "hunt and peck" typists... (Or "hunt and nose" or "hunt and STOMP" typists...)
