A very strange thread: especially the anxiety for descriptions instead of titles.
<grin> like the obsession of nobles in centuries past to prove more than 71 quarters of nobility in their family tree (see Voltaire's mockery of such things in the opening chapter of _Candide_). Isn't a title nominative, *not* descriptive---much as on can define a math set using comprehension, rather than extension?

And the anxiety over money. Comparing an abstract "average" TW wage to
an == even more abstract == average worker wage... What a terrible competitive ideology. Move on if you are getting ripped-off. And who wants to be "average, anyway? :-)
