*** Pirates:

What about the rescue of our Captain and the role of the Navy Seals? I am sure you have an opinion.

Carolynne Born

(I do. I'm very pleased we were able to influence events, and not allow the pirates to further their criminal activities in this incident. The SEALs proved their abilities. But this isn't an option all of the time. Usually it's a case of “Once they're aboard the only option is pay them off.”

The world's navies are trying to help, and are working together. But the area of ocean to be covered is enormous. Just enormous. Imagine trying to patrol Quebec with 20 police cars.)

*** From Mike Sorohan, on Ned’s presentation in Mumbai:

Which Metro station is this near?

(If you are coming from Jogeshwari or up north on the Western line, then it’s a straight shot down to Churchgate. If you are at Matunga you can take the Central Line to Dadar and change to the Western Line. It’s only an 11 minute walk from the Chatrapathi Shivaji Railway Terminus, which is on the Central and Harbor lines, to the Ambassador Hotel in Churchgate. You could follow Marty on the Segway.)

*** From Bill Seiberlich, who got it from Rob Bullock

My fellow lovers of language,

In case you missed it, today is the 50th anniversary of the publication of Strunk & White's The Elements of Style. NPR had a fantastic piece on it this afternoon. If you didn't catch it, I highly recommend taking a peek:

*** From Robin Rothman:

Hi, Ned:

You can certainly see how the economy has changed your job list: the

percentage of junior level and internship positions now appears to dominate.

I also want to acknowledge your attention to pirating activities over the years. As a military dude it's obvious that the crime draws your interest, but apparently Americans have to be intricately involved before the whole nation pays attention.

Thanks for doing what you do!

Best Regards,

Robin

*** This is your Job of the Week e-mail newsletter, a cooperative

service of professional communicators providing mutual support to one

another. The JOTW serves 11,095 professional communicators. Please help

contribute job opportunities so that this information can be shared with

everyone in the network. The key to successful networking is living by

the golden rule. Do something to help a fellow communicator, and some day they may be in a position to help you, or someone else like you.

How does it work? If you find out about a job opportunity in

communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com), and I'll share it

with the JOTW network. It's that simple. And we share dozens of

opportunities each week. Did I mention it was free?

Your cooperation is requested. Please send job opportunities to share

with all JOTW members to lundquist989@cs.com.

If your e-mail address is changing, please delete the old one and add your

new one. Here's how:

To subscribe, or to add a new e-mail address for your subscription, send

a blank e-mail to:

JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

To delete:

I can repeat this process again if it helps.

You are welcome to distribute this to fellow communicators. You are

welcome to look at the previous issues. To read this list on the web,
