The proverbial bus. It's waiting out there. Lurking amongst traffic. Hiding around the corner. Creeping through the carpark. Slowly but surely making its way to the ranch. Whenever anyone embarks on a vast, epic length story - the true ending to which is privy only to themselves... the question in interviews that tends to crop up is, "But what happens if you get run over by a bus?" This question is always sluffed off with a chuckle and a laugh and then they move on to more immediate affairs. But think about it for a moment. What if George was hit by the proverbial bus? What if he's crossing the street one day when KAPLOW a local bus knocks him off his feet? What if he's sitting in the ranch one day when SMASH a tour bus goes out of controll smashing through the wall and right into his office? What if he's strolling along in Australia one day, whistling a happy tune.... when BAM a greyhound comes tumbling out of the sky crushing him dead. Then how will the millions of fans ever get to see the conclusion of this great story he started? Oh sure - someone would try to finish it... but if it ain't Lucas, than what's the point. It would only be a guess as to how the story ended - not the real ending. And so we in Toronto have begun (cue the fanfare) THE GEORGE LUCAS BUS BRIGADE! (tm) Yes, a group of loyal dedicated fans who are willing to take a bus for Lucas in order that the rest of fandom may see the conclusion of the Star Wars Saga. Should we ever find ourselves in the same city as Lucas, it is our job to watch out for the approach of the proverbial bus and to push Lucas out of the way in the nick of time. At the moment, the effectiveness of the bus brigade is limited by the fact that its entire membership is situated in the GTA. This is why we're throwing the doors open to the rest of fandom. Because you know, just as well as I, that the closer to the end of the saga we get, the faster and more frequent the proverbial busses will become (at least, that's how the logic worked in Atari 2600 games - so it's gotta apply to real life, doesn't it?) So join the Bus Brigade. Take a bus for the big G. Do your part for fandom!
