If *anything* should be obvious to an attentive reader
of this list, it is that writing well -- clearly, precisely,
concisely -- is not something that many people do
most of the time, even among those who claim
professional qualifications in the field.

I can teach someone how to operate a mail sorter
in a few hours. It might take me years longer to
teach an average business executive how to avoid
embarassing errors in written communication.
