Hamlet: An Eye for an Eye. A Satellite for a Stone.

Hamlet: An Eye for an Eye. A Satellite for a Stone.

First, let me say that it’s really great to be here. Frankly, it was getting pretty nip-and-tuck as the fuse on 2012 burned short, but as we all discovered, 2013 arrived on schedule and in like-new condition.
