Acie:

Never underestimate the versatility and usefulness of lawyers.  I
recently hired one as an entry-level CAD trainee.  He earned a BBA and a
Law Degree from a Big Twelve university and passed the BAR exam back in
1982.  He started work with us on Valentines Day, and so far ... so
good.

I used to believe that young architects were the best option for
low-cost, entry-level CAD technicians.  Now, I am thinking that lawyers
are a better option.  Perhaps, some day, I will be able to extend this
logic even further and hire a medical doctor as a CAD trainee.  But I
don't want to hire just any doctor, I'm going to hold out for a surgeon.
