It isn't confusing. It's coding goodness!

Think of it this way. When you have a instance of the model Member,  
you only have one member. The table contains Members, lots of  
individual members.

Don't knock it until you try it. Dal-ACM should be running a tute /  
workshop soon again... whenever I got off my ass.
