Primitive or Pampered? That is the question.
As a teacher and writer, if I have a strength or gift, it is that I understand the basics of a wide range of endeavors. My true expertise is limited to rhetoric and composition. I also worked as an electrician for 15 years (union member) with a formal apprenticeship before going back to college. Beyond these two fields, I am no expert, merely knowledgeable. But I also learned that a bit of solid knowledge is quite useful and should not be dismissed. So I share freely what I learn and hope that I know where to draw the line—and on a blog like this I trust that we have at least one expert from every relevant field who will keep us in line and hopefully contribute to the community.
