My opinion:
Hmm, Laurie, this sounds a bit elitist. This may be a very *good* rate for
someone, especially if the cupboard is bare. Also, a recent college
graduate, someone who wants to freshen up his or her SGML skills, or
someone who just wants to get a foot in the door may see this as a great
opportunity. Money is not the only reason for working. If it was, I'd be a
lawyer or a salesman.

Mike, keep it up!
