Yeah Donovan, everyone wants NSA to stick around, just like Joe sez. They 
just want them to be somewhere else. And teach something else, have 
different ideas about everything else, have the instructors be someone else 
and have the same "beliefs and feelings" as everyone else (or at least Joe). 
Other then that they're just peachy, and should continue to display "their 
own good grace, own good grace, own good grace..."
