Not surprising, since the quality profession (ASQM) is also still fighting the good fight over "QA" and "QM" versus "QC" (trying to inspect quality into a product at the end of the production line). Hurrah, we are heroes and transformational change agents for Good, yahoo.

I don't know if I'm reassured to know that I have so much company in this situation -- or if that fact breaks my heart. I don't want to talk about this any more today. It gives me a headache and makes me cranky.
