Re: the recent "who is responsible" thread:

I agree with Andrew. Here, The buck stops with me. I like what someone wrote
about professionals that don't really care *who* is to blame, they just want
to fix it and move on. Bouquets to that attitude! Sometimes it is easier to
blame a snafu in communication on someone else than to say, "I screwed up."
It is those times, though, that have built my reputation around here as a
technical writer. I am the only TWer here. I have pretty much everyone
coming to me with questions re: writing, re: GUI design, re: 'how could we
do this' type questions. That didn't happen overnight. I figure to take the
the beautiful bouquets, you have to take a few dandelions and make wine from
them, and choke it down. Wine, not *whine*.
