In January 2009 North American print edition Control Engineering re-introduced an original comic to its pages. It is called "Engineering in Balance," by Mark T. Hoske, editor in chief, and Tom Rybarczyk, senior computer illustrator. Control Engineering acknowledges that engineering-minded readers, no matter where they work in their organizations, need to laugh, as they continue to find ways to make themselves more valuable to the world. A comic was monthly staple in early editions of Control Engineering in the 1950s. This one from the January 2009 issue shows how a common language sometimes can divide marketing and engineering minds.
