I can't speak from personal experience, but I can pass along the following:

Bill W******, Code ***'s Technology Manager, responded
to a questionnaire from the The Roadrunner, the newsletter
of Ridgecrest's Over the Hill Track Club. One of Bill's
responses identified his least liked subject in school:

"English composition. I couldn't understand why or where
an engineer would ever need to write anything. Boy, was
I wrong."

Bill is a respected and popular person at this little Navy operation. And I
point out that "technology manager" here is a responsible position.
