As much as I don't like soapboxing on OT issues, this is something that really
chaps my a$$! The fact that years of experience and demonstrated ability and
the human who posesses them are meaningless compared to some stupid little
pieces of paper is a travesty. I know the value of a college education, even
without one. There are many many people with college degrees that I wouldn't
trust to tie my shoes! As long as this nation is more concerned with policy
than humanity, none of us can know freedom or justice. Sorry for going off like
this, so I'll keep it short and well-tempered. Good luck Jim, I hope you can
find as much happines as I have at my current job!
