To be clear: I won't expect it in the book; I do realize they used
"Writer.". I was responding only to Dan's assertion that "writer" is the
"correct" way to put it. Correct for him--not so much for me. That's all
I'm saying. By no means do I wish to (re)start the title "war." :) As
Craig pointed out, we're a diverse lot, both in what we do and in what we
prefer to call ourselves. All I'd ask is that we all respect our different
preferences, even as we strongly hold our stong opinions. ;-)

Sorry, but whether you're happy with the word "writer" or not, that's the
word that was used in the Occupational Outlook Handbook from the Bureau of
Labor Statistics, which was the specific context being discussed. Call
yourself "communicator" all you like, but don't expect to find that
description in the government labor statistics or most commercially
available salary surveys.

The New Busy think 9 to 5 is a cute idea. Combine multiple calendars with
Hotmail. Get busy.
