I also believe Tom raises another valid concern...somehow or other, one needs to
decide what is worth saving...for I sincerely believe we can't save it
all. And, in most instances, we don't often have informed individuals
making those decisions...nor can even those informed, always have ALL of
the information that could add a greater degree of probability of making
a good decision.
