Uche, I'm shocked that someone of your considerable erudition would make
such an egregious error. Michigan? Nonsense! Wright lived and did much
of his work in Spring Green, Wisconsin--not so very far from your alma
mater. And as an old Wisconsinite, a former architecture student, and a
great admirer of Wright, I should take you to task for the slanderous
gist of your remark. But I'm tired and pressed for time, so I'll let you
off the hook for now.
Do I really need to append this annoying little mark :-) ?
P.S.: What does it mean for a technology to be 'Attic'?
