	Attempting to reclaim the space is a bit like trying to get all
the passengers to bring their hair dryers to the bow of the titanic
in hopes we can melt the ice berg in time.

	It has nothing to do with altering course.  It's an attempt
to dismantle the wall.  As crazy as that sounds, the reality is
that if we put focus on reclamation, there are those who will
believe that it is a solution, not a band-aid.

	We don't have infinite resources. As such, reclamation is
definitely NOT the place where our limited resources will have
the greatest effect.
