Another look at Tony's table
Based on his return trip to New Mexico, Tony's added a new entry for August 27th,
just below the original Truth or Consequences entry. He's also reused a couple of

of information in a table). You can see that when he added the new row, all he
needed to do was list the things that were different the second time around (the date,
the temperature, and that he revisited the diner).
