Welcome, New Brigaders!

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...
