Well, there it is again. President Obama has said it once more.

The window of opportunity is closing, the time left for serious debate and negotiation is running low and it’s only a matter of a year or so until the fabled two-state solution is irretrievably removed from the list.

And that list has always been a damn short one from the very start, the only other options on it being generally acknowledged as amounting to somewhat less than the proverbial hill of beans.

Then, if such is indeed the case, any additional entry to so small a number, even at this late stage in the game, is to be more than welcomed.

Think of it as a form of cruise control, the engine management system having taking over to make much better use of the horsepower available.

Why crawl along in the slow lane forever when your vehicle has the speed to easily outdistance every other driver on the road?
