Re: Promotion to Distinguished Engineer

Congratulations, Rich. This is indeed a well deserved honor for you, and
a good day for accessibility.
And, I believe I'm correct that you're the only Distinguished Engineer
with a specialization in accessibility among all the corporations who
use this distinctive designation? Perhaps I'm wrong, but I know there
aren't many like you.
