Does working on my own car qualify me as a mechanic?
Does attending a four day workshop @ the Wisconsin College of Engineering
qualify me as an Engineer?
And @ the risk of heartfelt spam from all those folks who are devout in
their proclamations that you DO NOT need an education to write;
Does having an apposable thumb and a #2 lead pencil qualify me as a writer?
