Did someone actually write "I think you're putting the horse before the
cart"? Any SME (or any 8-year old, for that matter) would lose respect for
someone who said that in complete seriousness. Not only do we need to learn
the technology we work in, but we need to master language. (Apologies if
I'm shooting at a flea with a cannon, it just struck me as funny,
considering the topic under discussion.)

Happy Monday!
