When I 'reply' or 'reply all' to Mike's post (re Gene and the 2x4 of
good sense) I see that Gene's text is gone, and only Mike's tresponse is
there.
I'll paste both below the part that Tbird put in, just for completeness.

Last summer, I commissioned a local wood carver to make me an "Official Technical Writer's 2x4"... I tell people it's for recalcitrant programmers, engineers and other SMEs. Don't know if TSA'll let me have it in my carryon luggage if I have to make an urgent trip to the left coast to adjust your attitude, though <grin>.
