Word is very slowly leaking out to the world about our acquisition of the NGA. We haven't made any press releases, but people are still discovering it. This blogger found out and wrote up a real nice writeup about the news.

Hurray! :hurray:
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
