      ...later.

      But let me tell you where I got that impression: From my boss (in 1986), a Canuck, who went through the system. His description of it made it sound pretty grueling; and included some kind of study for the local demographics (North Dallas/'burbs; this was roughly at the dawn of telecom boom in the area).

      But I'll read on and see if it better informs this impression.

      Thanks!

        and I've read it all the way through, and I'm fascinated. Personally I have just floated through this over the years, but what is described therein matches my own impressions pretty accurately for the period covered.
