What do you use as a greeting in the cover letters you enclose with
your resumes? Nothing I've tried lately feels just right, including
the following:

Dear Sir:
Dear Sir or Madam: [might be appropriate for Nevada]
Dear HR Department:
Dear HR Department Staff:

You can guess where I am career-wise right now, and I'd appreciate a
few thoughts from the savants and sinners that inhabit Tech World.

talking figures representing the top ten members of the Tech Writers'
Hall of Fame.]
