I'd love to start by accepting the extent of the problem, but I'm not aware of any reliable data on what the extent of the problem is. I'm sure we can all agree that there is a problem. Many positive developments towards solving it have already taken place, but there is still a way to go. How much of a problem still remains is, however, unless I'm missing something, unknown.
