Thanks for your patience while I've tried to get caught up (*puff, puff*) with the solar storm of activity we've had the past few days. What a blast it's been signing on all these enthusiastic recruits.
I decided to pull this section out of the Weekly Update (which will come later) and intro all the Brigade inductees in a separate post (the list is a long one). If I left anyone out, please feel free to bring it to my attention (i.e. smack chief facilitator upside the head) and I'll include you in the next version. Likewise, if I duplicate your name from the last list. (Or...maybe you've been secretly cloned! Never know what mischief we have going on in our Sciences division.)
Okay, ready? *takes deep breath from oxygen tank* Here goes...
