In recent days, it has become clearer that there is a division between a select group of special interest people who want to pull out all the stops for an airport at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station and much of the public, which is far more prudent by nature. And what it comes down to is this: The public's confusion over Measure A, as evidenced in a recent Times Orange County poll, is understandable and instructive.
