Let's blame it on the weather

Due to technical difficulties related to the demise of a beloved hard drive that was chock full of Noise, Hum, other Vox features and this author's almost finished book, this month's Vox is a bit late (we apologize) and rather abbreviated (sad to say). If you've submitted an announcement pertaining to your business, it will soon appear. Some very fine minds, including a 16-year-old computer whiz, a Tazo tea shaman and that trumpet player who wears Mickey Mouse ears are working like, well, madmen to retrieve the information. Not exactly sure what happened, but let's blame the weather.
