Quote

[I]f once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing; and from robbing he comes next to drinking and Sabbath-breaking, and from that to incivility and procrastination. Once begin upon this downward path, you never know where you are to stop. Many a man has dated his ruin from some murder or other that perhaps he thought little of at the time.

Thomas De Quincey

Here's something that's making the rounds today at work: Money Magazine's "Best Jobs in America" list. Top job: software engineer.

What grabbed our attention was technical writer (#13) and and editor (#19).

Per the magazine, the criteria include, among others: pay (duh); projected growth; stress level; creativity; and job flexibility.

Nice to know that one has what's considered to be a good job.
