Good Lord. The "facts" are every where these days. You can't "not" see/hear the facts these days. If you turn on a tv, the "facts" are there. If you turn on a broadcast radio, the "facts" are there. If you look at internet news sites, the "facts" are there. I will explicitly state it: There will be "equality" in amateur radio licensing. There, I said it. Now, that's going to be a pretty inflammatory statement for some. These days, the same words mean different things to different people. And this is one of those words that means different things to different people, especially today. Now, I suppose some of you will start asking me what that word means. And then we'll break down into an argument about semantics and I'll see copy/pasted Merriam Webster dictionary entries and/or an argument about at least a couple of other hot topics today which use that same word. I'm going to suggest we drop it, sit back, and watch what happens to the question pools in the next couple of years. There will be plenty to complain about then. Remember, we can never go back. We can only go forward. That's progress. If we are not going forward, we are falling behind. The amateur radio question pools need progress. And they're going to get progress. There's only one way forward. And it's pretty obvious to me which way that is. I don't know why it isn't pretty obvious to every one else.
