      An important, timely, and complex issue indeed -- I really appreciate the way you have addressed it. Your writing style is easily accessible and very much appreciated: thanks for drawing us (well, me) in with your intro; keeping me engaged with your descriptions of potential solutions; and for addressing the viability of the probable solutions (i.e. "Losing Battle?"). And what a dynamic battle it is -- the logistics alone are enough to get lost in ... Thank you again for an interesting and enlightening read - - J White (bsme 1996)
