At the risk of being considered over-protective of my profession, just a
short note to Mr WM James Davis and others who may have been watching too
many American films.

Alexandra described her friend who was concerned about owl-kills as someone
who drove freight trains which makes him an engine driver in Australia, not
an engineer. My grandfather drove the 38-class locomotives from Sydney to
Newcastle and was an engine driver.  I design, fabricate, construct and
manage structures and  therefore am an engineer.
