There are two pips in a beaut, four beauts in a lulu,
eight lulus in a doozy, and sixteen doozies in a humdinger.
No one knows how many humdingers there are in a lollapalooza.

Something does not compute with this plan. The lab buildings and support facilities on this island are in need of many millions ($90 million short term and $200 million long term) to bring them up to standard for continued bioscience (animal to human disease) work. And they would put $1.5 million into this lighthouse? Also there are plans in the future to possibly discontine the lab at this location. DHS took over this lab because it is a potential target that included as such on target list found on a person apprehended in Afganistan in 2008. This facility security has been judged to be inadaquate.

The statement concerning the lighthouse hit the press two days following this.
