Thank you! We must continue to try. Repetition does work. Eventually. There are new variants arriving on the scene also, Lambda from Brazil, I believe, and an unlettered variant from Colombia that has recently arrived in Miami. We don't know much about these yet, but the news can't be good. Excellent piece, Jessica.
