Well, assumptions are a dangerous thing, Chris. They make an "ass" out
of "u" and "me". ;-)

Through the benefits of Gmail I have re-read our posts and I do not
see where I said any of the things in response to the items you
reference. Yes, I said I would not lower my standards, but that was in
response to the number of candidates I have resumes for, not the flaws
which may exist on a resume.

My point was precisely that I do not pick the best candidate out of
the group of resumes I have. If no one meets my expectations, I
discard the whole lot of resumes I have and I broaden my search.

As Gene indicated, there is hardly a shortage of candidates.

Well, again, you completely took all my comments out of context and
reordered them to fit your argument. I have no response to this.
