Last December, Doug Roberts, a software engineer at the Energy Department's Los Alamos National Laboratory, was driving down Interstate 25 from Albuquerque when he pulled into Arby's, a fast-food restaurant. He was frustrated and unhappy.

Used to be (check if current) Costa Rica. Friendly, foreign, nearby, safe, and a higher education level than the US. Robert Vesco was my boyhood hero.
