RE: Any Of You Folks Need A Writer?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I can't claim 99th percentile on my GRE's, but I did hit 650 on my SAT
verbal, so my English is still above average. I'm also a voracious
reader to boot.

I'm out here in code-land (literally, at the moment -- in Dallas at the
IgCC hearings) trying my best to bring some sense, or at least some
grammatical consistency, to the I-Codes. I would definitely accept any
help I can get!

Probably end up sounding the same. That's about lawyers not engineers,
architects or constructors.
