It's funny, because I've had a similar experience lately. See, I was shopping at The Gap, looking for a semi-formal dress to wear to a wedding, but everything they had was pretty casual. Every person on earth needs a semi-formal dress. Therefore, by consistently failing to provide me an opportunity to buy this dress, The Gap is clearly demonstrating what is fundamentally flawed in clothing retailers altogether. They obviously think dressy clothing is unnecessary and are choosing instead to concentrate on completely and utterly useless things like khakis, jeans, and overpriced teeny tiny t-shirts. I wrote them a long whiny e-mail asking why the entire store wasn't dedicated to semi-formal clothing (preferably in my size and in colors suitable for my complexion... we are *all* autumns, aren't we?) but they have refused to answer. Too embarassed to admit their own stupidity, I'm sure. Harrumph.

(Someone suggested I just go to Dillard's instead, but then what would I have to complain about?)

As depressing as that is, it too does not surprise me. The STC's
conference is a clear demonstration of what is fundamentally flawed in
technical communications today: a complete de-emphasis of technical issues
in favor of management, organization, and tool issues.
