We failed. Bearing Drift let you down in 2008. We left a stone unturned via the Drake v. Nye race, and now it is probably way too late to do anything about it. We did not adequately pursue this whole residency flap to its ultimate conclusion: the truth.
Del.

Good luck to Lowell on his new endeavors. However, I find all this nostalgia a bit amusing; all the blog has really done is allowed […]
