	Speaking of architects getting more than their fair share of praise
from the
	media, I was perturbed by the fact that MSNBC had the president of
AIA on
	the air last night during their coverage of the earthquake to
discuss
	'structural' issues (e.g., structural performance of bldgs in the
quake,
	advances in bldg code to make structures more resistant to quakes,
etc.).
	AIA Prez even had time to mention that AIA dispatches members to
participate
	on quake recovery teams.  As a matter of fact, I don't believe I
heard
	"structural engineer" mentioned all night long on any of the various
	channels I was flipping amongst.  Talk about stealing our thunder!

	Keep dreaming.  If anyone in the design industry gets any brownie
points
	from the media because of low damage statistics it will be the
architects.
