Land Me On The Moon: North, South Or In Between?

There's a controversy brewing among NASA planners over whether human missions should land at the North or South Poles or the equatorial region. (Here.) The poles are where the water might be and the temperature there remains relatively moderate (by Lunar standards, anyway) most of the time. The equatorial region is more well-known, has regions where resources for on-site use are more likely to be found, but it suffers from temperature extremes. Either-or, either-or once again. Let's try both-and, shall we? Why not go to all three?
