I'm not going to worry about perfecting every argument before I post it -- this is a blog after all -- so I could use some help here from readers to keep me sharp. Those generally sympathetic to REC, help me make a strong case. If I'm not doing justice to a particular idea, let me know and help me to do better. Everyone else, please point out those points of my arguments that you don't find convincing. Force me to be clear and persuasive.
