Not What You Think

No, it wasn't on account of March Madness, St. Patrick's Day shenanigans (although we did enjoy taking in the usual scattered St. Pat's late night singing & arguments wafting up from the streets in our 'hood late last night), or Metro-related challenges that we're late to the game (and not exactly bringing a robust set, at the start) on this sunny Friday morning.  We're just super super busy on a couple other fronts.  More to come today, we hope.
