well i can't resist---i want to take the award for being at the bottom of
our field. i'll accept upside down, furthest south, most heavily
dressed, most unfashionably dressed, and most non-humidified (it's drier
than the sahara here). quoting linda's quote-"it's just something i
know."

also in answering her question: i feel my perception is not deluded at
all and i'm sticking to it. `-)
now-if i could just be as deluded about the galley food....

oh-in fairness linda-to answer your question, i think it would too tough
to pinpoint the best in our field, i'm sure there are many bests in
different disciplines of tech communication.

stay cool.
