Sad enough


'What is civil engineering-' is a question that the public has great difficulty answering (NCE 27 January).

Then surely in the 21st century, put the answer on a website, not just in a leaflet.

The same page of NCE has 'Ask Brunel' - a wonderful icon since 2002's Great Britons on the BBC - but it is for ICE members only. This is sad.
