technical writers (1) does not value the skill, and (2) equates
writers with "administrative" and "secretarial" help.

For years, I kept a classified ad that I had cut out of the Boston Globe
taped to my monitor. It was for a "Technical Writer/Sec'y." It was all I
needed to remind myself that I had it pretty good.

(In fact, maybe I'd better mock up a similar ad in PaintShop Pro . . . )
