    Somebody in OMB has an excellent sense of humor. Who knew?

    It always makes my day when a spokesperson (doesn't matter if it's government, corporation, NGO, military, whatever) shows a light touch that's actually responsive to whatever the query is.

    It's easy to forget that there are real people out there in the generic offices and that some of them are clever.

    It wasn't in PRSI was it? I thought I posted it in community.

    No, but SilentPanada posted the story about 7 hours before you, hence the merge.

    MOD NOTE: And I'd prefer not to have to move it.

    We just have to inspire the Russians to build one, then we'll get ours!

    Do not call it the death star. It should be called the Freedom Star

    Not really any arguments going on to put it in PRSI still unless I missed something... not that it really matters either way I suppose.

    If it was a choice between a Death Star and Newt's Moonbase Alpha, I'd personally rather have the latter.

    Many Bothans died to bring us this information.
