heh

Given the world not hard to imagine where such skepticism might come from.

Its also interesting that any anti-arena missive is dismissed as pothole pandering so readily while any pro-arena stance is immediately assumed to be forward thinking, enlightened, well thought out, etc.

In this dialogue then even comments about backwaters, backward thinking, accusations of naysaying, uninformed hicks etc are considered proper, rather than improper.

Such is the imbalanced dialogue that has gone on.
