And I'm sure that if travel reduction would be the primary objective, that there could yet be other plans which could reduce travel even more than that previous proposal.
Oh, I get it. You're being contrarian, playing at semantics. Let's spell it out, then:
Is there an increase between the 2011 proposal vs. the one now? Yes. Should the current one be finalized, will there be an overall reduction compared to the current six-division alignment? Yes. Will it be as much as the 2011 proposal? No. Can I live with the current proposal? As I've state a couple of times, yes. Will I continue to point out that adding in a WC for the West is inelegant, particularly if much of the rationale for realignment was to address issues of time zone and travel?
