If one of you more talented photo-manipulation types wants to manipulate a screenshot of the raccoons on Marian’s leg to a 500-by-160 and email it to conferencethree[at]gmail[dot]com — which is where you should direct all your correspondence — we’ll put it in header rotation along with our raccoon coat of arms and our Black Flag.
