So maybe the Marxist literary critical approach (not to be confused with
"Marxism" or "Communism") is best after all. Go figure.

Ah, but if business writing is a subset of technical writing, Lauren
doesn't
get to charge as high a rate for it because she'd have to wear her
humble
technical writer hat instead of her highfalutin business analyst hat. At

least after her latest post we finally can see why she has been clinging
so
adamantly to her idiosyncratic assertion that "business writing and
technical
writing are mutually exclusive". If there *were* any overlap, it would
affect her negatively in the pocketbook, which is clearly unacceptable.
