    Folks, ordinarily I'd agree about this sounding like B.S.  However, I
    know Steve, and he doesn't deal in B.S.  This is exactly the sort of
    thing he does for a living, and he's quite good at it.  I have no
    reason to think it didn't go down just as he described.  The building
    where my own agency is located was penetrated just as easily by a
    hired contractor some months ago.  Security is an illusion.
