Robert -

"lousy" is a legitimate word.
"degreed" should have been in quotes; although a common verbal expression,
it hasn't made it (and, perhaps, should never make it) to Webster's
Collegiate in the context in which I used it.
I have already apologized for "grammer."

Aside from the constructive criticism of the language in my position on
certification, how do YOU feel about certification?

Regards,

-Vester

Vester, if us rascals are such lousy (sic) writers who do not know
grammer (sic), why are you degreed (sic) "qualified professionals" hungry
and looking for jobs? I'd like to know what school you graduated from.

If your comments were tongue-in-cheek, they didn't come off
that way.
