After reading Frank Lew?s persuasive arguments, this above statement above
be rushing a bit to a preconceived conclusion. We don?t really know what the
public wants because we haven?t asked them in any systematic or formal way.
Who knows, we may find that the public prefers the status quo. By the way,
would you all suggest that the public reconsider this philosophy in a
systematic way?


Response from Dennis Wish PE:
Better yet, how do you poll the public as to their knowledge of performanced
based designs.
