Sharp point


The letter pages of the NCE last week must have the outside world rocking in the aisles with laughter. So, we're a bunch of penknife wielding would be assassins, ready to save the rest of humanity with our utility travel kits.

Personally, due to the advent of screw top wine bottles and ring pull beer cans, I got rid of my penknife and utility kit years ago. I never did get to pull any stones out of horses' hooves.

Common sense dictates, in this day and age, that we should comply with current security protocols. It seems there are a signicant number of you out there that think civil engineers should be exempt.
