Boilermaker Code is “survival tool”

[Addressed to IP Newton B. Jones, via email]

I JUST WATCHED “The Boilermaker Code: Ending the Red Ass Era.” The Boilermaker Code may be the most important survival tool since the inception of the MOST programs. I am so glad to see that we are admitting to and addressing an issue that has cost us untold man-hours and dollars.

Thank you.
