Subscribers Meg Ewald and Bryce Krueger of Las Cruces, N.M., toured the office. Bryce studies exotic species on the White Sands Missile Range, including an antelope that’s a long way from home: the African oryx.
One of our 17 Rhode Island subscribers, Josh Cott, stopped by for a visit. He’s completing an internship in the emergency department at nearby Montrose Memorial Hospital.

Jordan Busch and Dawn Stender visited us from Portland, Ore. Jordan owns a Buffalo-style chicken wings restaurant called "Fire on the Mountain," where he distributes copies of HCN to customers. He left us jars of his spicy peanut sauce and his searingly hot "El Jefe" sauce.
