The missing piece of that excellent Portland jigsaw puzzle finally turned up today. It was under the edge of the rug. I could have sworn I had already looked there, but I guess not.

Alas, the other 999 pieces are back in the box. Full unification of the complete image will have to be at someone else's hand. But at least they'll have all the pieces to work with.

Charges against the suspect, Winston Lemieux, are being downgraded, but not dropped.
