  1. I do love the way you have framed this issue and it does offer us some fodder for thought. On the other hand, coming from everything that I have witnessed, I only wish when the actual feed-back pile on that people stay on point and in no way embark upon a soap box associated with some other news of the day. Still, thank you for this exceptional point and even though I can not really concur with this in totality, I value the viewpoint.
