Brian Wright English 111 B 21 March 2000 Mrs Innes A Response to Is Craft Dead Tom Zaffiri has written a truly biased article about craftsmanship Although he is right about how we live in a much more technologically advanced society where most goods are mass produced I can not see where he can say a craftsman of the society of fifty years ago is inferior to the craftsman of today In fact carpenters of today are actually much better craftsman of their counterparts of fifty years ago pg 14 He is basing his one-sided opinion merely on todays technology I mean think of the truly magnificent structures that were constructed long before than just fifty years ago There has been skillful craftsmanship probably since the spawn of man for crying out loud Just because our society has the knowledge to make buildings bigger and faster now doesnt make us superior to our preceding classes of craftsman I worked doing construction for three summers with my Uncle Rich so I do have a little background on what I am talking about here too Eventhough we were equipped with all of the top of the line tools that one could possibly need I still worked amongst some of the most ignorant people that actually tried to pass themselves off as skillful craftsman Personally I think that Mr Zaffiri needs to go back and do some more research to broaden his horizon a little bit better on what he writes about and then try writing a well rounded article next time His shallowness really appalled me to the point to where I was almost thoroughly disgusted with his writing
