RE: [eia] introduction

Hi William.  My name is Jim Helle (aka Great Britain).  I'm 37, married with
two boys (7 and 10), and have been playing RPGs and war games off and on
since I was about 14.  I live in Newark, Ohio (about 30 miles east of
Columbus) and have known both J.J. and Kyle for about six years.  I decided
college wasn't for me and joined the U.S. Army directly after graduation.  I
am currently employed as a professional driver for J.B. Hunt Transport.

Regarding the current game, my vote is to start over.  I say this despite my
fear that others will think I'm just bailing on a desperate situation.  This
isn't the case.  Austria made no attempts to engage in any diplomacy in the
beginning of our current game.  This wasn't a strategic decision, he just
didn't know what to do and therefore did nothing.

I'll keep a tally of people's preferences, - for 'start over', +
for continue, 0 for neutral:

JJ:      -
Joel:    0
