I like to talk to people who identify themselves, don't you? So I think I'll sleuth my way down to Leopold's and hang out mysteriously with Andres Duany's latest tome peeking in an intriguing manner from a bookbag, to see if any strangers approach and murmur "I am rober98, sometimes known as frm." I'll let curious listservers know what I discover! Christina Lirones, secret identity: Tina
PS: Is Leopold's still open? We spies hate to go out in the cold if it's not necessary.
