Annuit coeptis, novus ordo seclorum

Said a sad sayonara to Chicago. Been moving around a lot. Now settling into my new city, with a new book on the religious dimensions of which on my nightstand (see docket in sidebar). Great book so far. Everyone moving to a great city should read an exegesis of the local architecture and urban layout. Makes for great pickup conversations.

Like: "Hey, babe, did you know that Jefferson wanted to put 'Rebellion to Tyrants Is Obedience to God" on the obverse side of the Great Seal instead of the 'Annuit coeptis' thingy?" If that doesn't work, I can always go and egg his memorial.
