I am beginning to feel like that tar baby ot my grade-school fables: I am
unable to complete my surveyt of staffers-vs-contractors. I now have a count
of 88 respondents, 53 claiming status as staffers and 35 as contractors, for a
ratio of 60-40, still holding steadily.
I am beginning to get a fix on the kinds of work are sisters and brothers
here are doing, but it is too soon to establish a trend. Stay tuned: I will
continue to provide the feedback. - Herm
