I hear what you are saying, but for me it is a more worthwhile exercise to
ponder ways to make the current system more efficient than to examine
reasons why it should be torn down.  It's hard for me to argue for the
status quo, on the other hand I think that there are some very positive
things about the way things are.  I'm not advocating for a stay the course
route, but I'm just saying that the wholesale rebuilding of this system
would probably cause more harm than good.

As far as multiple systems are concerned, I'm not sure I get it.

Thanks,

Rick McLaughlin
