I am already aware that what is taken for granted in NYC is not recognized
anywhere past 75 miles from Manhattan. I need to know more about what you are
expressing in the Far West. I feel a gulph exists between Chicago & LA and I am
not sure what the territory carries. I've had some interesting encounters with
Texas, and for what they have been, HP perspective seemed fairly regular to me.
Do you know where I can look on the I-way?
