I do see your point and understand quite well. I don't know how much I am 
sold on the I can't afford to conserve theory. Every one can conserve and do 
it by simple little measures. How we can convince people to do that is the 
problem. Another point I have is, yes low gallonage toilets will help, 
however how much is up for grabs. But then again a gallon saved is a gallon 
earned( maybe thats pennies but it sounded good at least).
