Dear Vana,

Do we not need 'BOTH/AND' here? Are there not situations in which linear
thinking is required and other situations in which global thinking is
required... or most suitable? Frankly, ANY thinking is better than none!
We see enough of the none variety around.

I think the best is to be able to understand when you need to use which
type AND to be able to use both.

Best Regards,
