You say that you don't want to revisit the shitstorm (why bother with the prissy $ sign), yet you just repeat the same views over-and-over again. What you say is perfectly obvious to anyone, we're not children, but we are surely allowed to express our disappointment and concern with the way things are going.

(Edit: CGW takes me to task in a subsequent post, (which now seems to have been deleted), for using the word "views" for what he asserts, quite correctly, to be "facts". Please read my post with this substitution....I don't think it actually alters my point one iota. )
