Yeah, I agree. What could be possibly educational about seeing an Eastern
Bloc computer, or the Lorraine prototype, or just about every Atari ever
made? Not to mention the Tomy Tutor, whose exhibitor should be shot for
such a useless exhibit that fails to enhance people's awareness of classic
computers. Pure intellectual drivel with no redeeming interest value and it
should be stopped immediately.
