Hello Pat O'Connell. I am a Pat O'Connell who attended UNM in the late 80's and am a civil engineer. I was working as a consultant to Sandia Labs about 15 years ago. When I went to get a consultant pass, security there tried to give me a super-secret clearance pass - ie give me a pass for different Pat O'Connell's security clearance. Also, the Trib used to do a list of DWI offenders. That wasn't me either. For a relatively small town, there sure do seem to be many of us.
