So you'll get seamless coverage of the back room deals in Washington?
I'm sure only Moore prevents us from being there. I'm sure the board
meetings won't mind a few perching quadcopters in there, either.

I wonder why they let Bamford get away with it year after year.
I understand he has some fans in the agency, and since he's not

in the press makes sense. It's hard to justify your budget if 
you're not there.
