    Oh C'mon! You gotta be kidding me! Is this for real???!???!?
    I think I should go down to DC and tell the White House that I have 
    been selected to be President and see if they can get an intern to 
    give me a "tour"...
    [Moderator: hehe.. Believe it or not, I can tell you that this certainly
     COULD happen to NASA or any other high security facility. I have actually
     been toying with the idea of writing a paper on how ineffective physical
     security measures are because of stuff like this. When was the last time
     you saw someone in a building with no ID and stopped to challenge who
     they were? People just go on their merry way and ignore others, prop
     secure doors open, hold the door for people coming in behind them, etc.
     If you walk about like you are supposed to be there, then dammit, you
     are supposed to. If not, they certainly don't know.]
