What bothers me is people who have no experience who just decided to
be a writer one day (probably the day they saw the ad). What are we
doing wrong? Why do people think *anyone* can be a writer? Why does
my boss pay our contract desktop publishers more than our contract
writers? Why did our last opening for a writer draw resumes from one
of our Systems Design guys and a woman who works at our print shop
(if you can print, you can write?) Why do we get resumes from
people who can't even show me that they have ever written one
paragraph in their entire lives?????????

Why ask why...

I never express opinions, but if one slips out, it belongs
to me and not ODVTE.
