My point was it backed up the previous poster's assertion that the FAA considers a one hour (give or take) commute to a place of business, or between two different bases, to be "local in character" and not the 30 minutes mentioned by the OP.

As for your rant about my misunderstanding...I think I have a pretty good handle on what the letters said:

That a pilot driving in from home to a base airport for work is not deadheading...and hence not on duty, and can be part of rest period.
That a pilot traveling from one base to another would be considered on duty only if the commute is required by the operator, is paid for/provided by the operator AND is more than roughly 1 hour (the local in character part of the equation) OR if other duties were expected to be performed during the commute such as preflight planning or paperwork.

So before you go accusing people of a lack of understanding perhaps just take the time to read between the lines and see that the information the previous poster indicated was not available in an interpretation (ie that a one hour commute is considered local in nature by the FAA) WAS in fact contained within the other information in both those interpretations.
