OK, "unveiling" might be a bit much. Come on, those of you who've seen us working for the past couple of weeks have a pretty good idea of what we've been up to. It's not like we've been working behind a sheet, or snagging passers-by & threatening them to vows of secrecy.

Moving to Albuquerque after seventeen years spent haunting the villages outside city limits was a big deal. I considered it at least "noteworthy." The building I selected to move to, however, actually was… Continue
