Bruce and Camille's discourse on the joys of work:
>And in the mean time, 90% of other occupations are harder, dirtier,
more demoralis(z)ing, less rewarding, more boring and don't earn you as

>Camille: And I've done 'em all, you betcha...">

Camille, my hat's off to you. We often just don't know how well off we
really are. This came home to me several years ago when I spent a couple
of weeks in West Virginia, in coal mining country, with a group of teens
from church. We took an afternoon to visit an exhibition mine, learning
what grindingly hard and dangerous work some folks have to do... When I
returned to my techwriting job after the trip, I could have kissed my
desk! (That visit came to mind last night too, watching "The Farmer's
Wife" on Frontline. I never really knew how physically and mentally
tough that life could be.) So I'll stop now, and go back to appreciating
my sometimes-tedious, but sometimes-great, desk job, where the biggest
hazards are stress and carpal tunnel syndrome!
