My brother worked at Chrysler for thirty-seven years. During the boom years, there was great influx of workers from Kentucky and West Virginia. One of the West Virginians became a Foreman. One day Norman asked him a question about a part he was checking for Quality Control, and the Foreman was irritated about being interrupted and he gestured toward a blueprint hanging on the wall, and said, " Hell, Shirkey, look over there, there's a diaphragm right on the wall!" To this day, when one of us asks a silly question, another will invariably answer with "There's a diaphragm on the wall!"
