Why choose a shop in Carthage MS for alignment work?

Because there are two shops in Carthage I had good dealings with last January when I needed a problem diagnosed and between them they did a fine job.

Geneticists are sorely vexed that so few genes are required to make something as complex and clever as a geneticist.
