Thanks for the reply. You do make sense, and I actually agree with much of your analysis.  However, it is still difficult to understand.  I guess, as is usually the case, most simple answers don't prove to be completely correct.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead

... confuse matters for political ends, and the normal media often (+) just reports them as part of the mix in their "he said / she said" style of reporting. "Concerns have been raised ...", when just a little research will show that the 'concerns' are simply political noise to create doubt and confusion and nothing more.

(+ not invariably, though ... I did enjoy seeing a Republican Congressman trying to push the "$8b for Harry Reid's magnetic levitation train from Disneyland to Sin City" line and get smacked down by the television reporter asking "questions" along the lines of, "isn't that just untrue? There is a list of designated high speed rail corridors and that line is not on the list.")
