Patrick tells us that


...while many Americans cannot read or write effective, they are,
nonetheless, *not* poor communicators?


I have a bit of a problem here. I don't think we're really great
communicators either. In fact, I find it difficult to find people who can
discuss an issue without taking every shred of disagreement personally. I
don't call this good communication.

At the same time politicians are shopping around for words to misrepresent
what they're talking about. Such as *misspoke* instead of *lie*. Or
*revenue enhancement* instead of tax increase.

Perhaps I'm too cynical, Patrick. Can you explain what you mean by "*not*
poor communicators?

Am I straying too far from the subject of TECHWR-L?
