So now's the time for me to establish the ASTW, the TWO, the OTW, the
TWCS, and three or four dozen other membership and certification bodies.
At least two or three of them will catch hold and stick, and get in with
Obama's yet-to-be-created National Technical Writer's Authority*, and I
(rather than or in addition to the STC) can be in charge of my
certification.

(* Yes, National Technical Writer's Authority. Because Writer's is the
plural of Writer, see? That's how plural's work.)
