Update: Pgate has left the building unscathed. The Publisher was conveniently not in at 4:45. The Silent Designer informed me that the Publisher called at 5:15 and told him he'd do it tomorrow, but then asked the S.D. if he was sure? ("Are you having second-thoughts?") To which the Silent one replied: "It's like no mother fucker, do it already," or so he claims. More tomorrow.
