Hi Hewitt, thanks for your comments. Being a Civics teacher, I am always asking my students to be aware of bias, be it in written material, TV commercials, or the internet. I tell them that the more information you have the better chance you have in identifying if bias exists, as well as how to view the information. In the case of the Nogales report, I had no previous knowledge of it, so my first thoughts were to be wary. Thanks for adding to my knowledge pool. I too am worried about our economy, mainly because most Americans are up to their ears in debt and have forgotten how to save for the future. I am amazed to talk with friends that make way more than I do, and are saving way less than I am. Maybe some tough economic times are what we actually need to right the ship - I tell my good friend that loves his gas guzzling truck that the best thing that could ever happen to America is for gasoline to start selling for $8 a gallon. Then the brilliant minds would have the economic incentive to work on new fuels, engines, or other technologies that would diversify or end our dependence on the one resource we need so badly, but don't have enough of. Thanks again, and I always enjoy reading your comments. Bob
