Tom, some people are reading too much in between the lines. I've learned awhile ago that some people without formal credentials, like a degree, can be a little sensitive to that fact. We should give them a break.<P>Hmm... I vote that all professional ballet dancers be awarded initials to append to the end of their names, like GrBD, for Graduated Ballet Dancer, after they graduate from a professional ballet school and a PrBD, for Professional Ballet Dancer, after ten years of qualified professional dancing experience.<P>Somehow, people (no matter what the education) tend to give too much stock to those darn initials. I've begun to drop all of mine, unless I absolutely need them for professional liability reasons.
