In computer programming I have always been a proponent of naming data items, objects, programs, files, etc with names that essentially describe what they do or what they contain. Makes sense…but it’s not always followed and often leads to misunderstandings and code errors years later.

Anyone reading this blog won’t be surprised to hear that I am vehemently opposed to Right To Work legislation. Nor that I am not particularly happy about the events from the past week or so that have lead to this particular blog.
