The interesting thing about "level playing fields" is that you sure hear a lot of people preaching and complaining about them; but, much like the Loch Ness monster, it's hard to find anyone who has ever really seen one!

If you plowed and planted a field level, a "hard rain" would "set up" on the field and drown the crop. Planted fields are shaped and tapered, valleyed and hilled. There's a sculptured artistry and fine craftsmanship in a farm field which has been thoughtfully and properly John Deere'd.
Even big city soccer Moms - down on their knees at the edge of the field, cussing like a sailor at the Ref while cheering their 4-year olds on - have noticed that the playing pitch has been mounded so that it will drain. It's not level!
Most folks you'll find calling for a level playing field are usually just finagling for a favor, seeking an advantage, or working hard to promote their own selfish, self-interest. Most are out in left field... especially the "b-worders" who keep whining about a level playing field between b*@ks and credit unions.
Well, personally I give up - time to "move on". I'm ready to concede to their level playing field request! Here's the deal.....
Think about it a little if you need to, but you'll
find those are your only two choices for "leveling things out".
