    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Welcome from roasty, toasty Colorado!

    Birthplace of Broncomania.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
    -Peart

    Hello, from Irving, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Welcome to Cyburbia. How long have you been lurking? If it has been awhile then you know some REAL GOOD "stuff" about many of the folks who hang on these well-tended sidewalks. Your turn to tell us about yourself!

    Glad you joined the party.

    I am a Florida native that has spent the past 20 years out of the state--most recently Western Pennsylvania--and has finally returned. I've been teaching in a university for many years and consulting on comp plans, redevelopment, and economic development projects. I've now moved into government and am going to give that a shot for a while--academia had become pretty boring for me.

    I won't be too specific about where exactly I am so I don't get dragged into some discussions I really don't want to be a part of.

    Hey, the general stuff is fine; don't make me defend my board or my boss, that's all I'm saying.
