Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Three cultural indicators in USA.

  1. You never see an engineer on TV.  Or anywhere else.  

  2. Engineers are NOT considered a "catch" like, for example, an MD.  In fact, engineers are considered quite unhip.  Ask any woman.

  3. People who run business in USA will actually fire parts of their engineering departments to meet a profit target and actually win approval from Wall Street for this insanity.
