Being an engineer I too falll into the desk jockey genre`. However my parents had the forthought to "stongly suggest" that I take trade classes in High School. The lessons learned were immensely valuable. First, I may not run my own plumbing or electrical, build my own house, or rebuild my own car engine, but when talking with those who practice the trades, I know enough of the terminology and concept to understand the work being done. You wonder why we see so many stories in the news about people getting scammed and taken by "questionable" contractors, I'm betting that lack of understanding of the basic concept was at least a contributing cause. I feel that every H.S. student should be forced to take a class on basic auto repair, home concepts and Lord forbid, home economics to graduate. Just my personal opinion. Now about immagrants in plumbing, I knew that they were crossing the border in tunnels, but plumbing? Can you use a plunger to get them out, or do you have to resort to a snake?
