Geesh Tom. How do you really feel? (ha ha ha)
Actually, Texas is not the only state with that type of law. I do not
have "engineer" in my title, but its misuse does bother me sometimes.
Forget the law...I have a hard time with the word engineer in several
titles. As with many words, engineer can mean more than one thing. We
normally do not think about it--we simply derive the meaning from the
word's usage in a sentence. The word engineer could be the driver of a
train (I think of the guy with the pinstripe hat hanging out of the
window of a steam engine--ha ha). Does the E in MCSE mean engineer as
in: a designer or builder of military works; a person who designs,
invents, or contrives; a person who is trained in or follows as a
calling a branch of engineering; a person who is in charge of the
engines of a ship; or a crafty schemer? He he he...
