    Hello, from Dallas, 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

    Howdy from someone who is currently in the planning profession in the Austin area, but who is a proud University of Oklahoma alumnus.

    Yeah, I get a lot of crap down here, but hey - I'd expect the same for a Longhorn grad who lands a job in central Oklahoma, as well.

    Greetings from the Florida panhandle.
    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    Greetings from another planner in the Austin area!

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."
