Here's a topic for discussion: A while back, I saw a description for a
technical writer opening. It included one line that I found most highly
interesting. Along with the usual stuff about required skills and duties,
there was this:

"Must operate independently on tight schedules without placing excess
demands on subject matter experts"

I can think of two ways to read this, both bad. But perhaps I'm too
cyncial, and there is a way to read this as an indicator of a positive
situation. Your thoughts?
