Excellent article, well-written, sourced and from a credible outlet. Very informative as it relates, not only to the issue at hand, but to the broader implications thereof.

The article has credible sources from scholarly institutions giving a bit of educated speculation about what can happen. Since there is a lot that is, as of yet, unknown; I would like to see this get updated as the situation evolves and gets resolved. Ultimately, accurate information with full accounting of events is the best outcome.
