“Thanks for all the great information you send out regularly,” writes Barb Byers. “Love the blend of current struggles, history and quizzes. One suggestion is for the quiz to have a place for comments. I know what a siderographer is because I read Pay Cheques and Picket Lines many years ago so it would have been great to have a place to say what the profession did.”
Thanks for the suggestion! Meanwhile, click here to participate in this week’s quiz.

That is a gig I would not recommend.”
