Hmm, Hunter, Hunter,... wasn't he an STC patrol leader? Yeah, he might have been someone I'd trust to do it. Not just anyone can understand the pure fetishistic impulse of professionalization, let alone inspire us to earn the merit badges needed to become a certified bona fide technical writer. But if anyone could, it'd have been Hunter.

Good idea,

Since Hunter S. Thompson is gone, it's going to be a
hard search for candidates.
