Thank you, thank you. :) I actually have a fair amount of faith in
what's happening, too. I just wrote my final Region 7 Director's
column and talked about this very thing; I'll be glad to send it to
you if like. I'd post it here, but I think it'd be OT and would not
be in keeping with the TechWr-l group as a whole, but anyone can have
a copy that wants one.

No, no, please go ahead and say it. I say it, too, and I've been one
of the people kicking and prodding it in the direction I'd like to
see it go. :)
