1.  I don't think Alan Goldstien is our friend in lieu of recent attacks by

2.  Alan Goldstien makes far more than $60 a year and is paid by us?

3.  Architects should not be allowed to sign for any engineering.  They
don't have the training or knowledge.  They only learn general principals,
not details.  The architects exam is not very deep, but long.  It is all
very general.  You don't have to know a lot about anything, but you need to
know a little about a lot of things.  In 30 years of practicing structural
engineering, I've only met 5 architects I thought were capable of doing a
competent job of engineering.  All 5 of those are also licensed structural
