Thanks DD!

I was hoping to take a shortcut as get_query_var works fine. However,
WP_Query doesn't seem to accept tag= as a parameter (I was hoping I could
simply pass the $tag variable to WP_Query). I already have a main loop going
on in the same page and therefore I don't think I can use query_posts
either, which would have let me do this. I'll take a closer look at the
get_objects_in_terms and get_posts suggestions to see how to get this to
