Bonni (like Madonna or Roseanne, one name identifies her) posits:
>The more an engineer protests that he or she can write "just as well as a
>writer" the more likely it is that he or she cannot. The less he or she
>protests this, the more likely it is that he or she can, but won't.

To which I add the Grey Corollary:

"That engineer who can't write, but thinks he or she can, goes through the
roof highest when a real writer marks up his or her text."
