Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You got that right!!!!!!

Couple of reasons why I haven't given up hope on Engineers, however.

  1. My book Elegant Technology was first published, in Finnish, (NOW do you understand why I think the Finns are the brightest people on earth??) by a publishing house owned by the pension funds of a trade union of engineers.  (If you live in USA, I understand why this might be hard to believe.)

  2. My brother-in-law, a Boeing engineer, was involved in the SPEA strike in Seattle (5 years ago?).  I was involved with the P-9 strike against Hormel.  To have a aerospace engineer at probably the most famous manufacturer on earth sound EXACTLY like an angry meatpacker was a real revelation.
