    Thank you. I never imagined a large and powerful organization would have ties to other large organizations. Amazing.

    Just had a crazy thought: do you think *those* organizations have connections and contacts, too? How far does this spread? Does it go so far that pretty much *all* large organizations have connections to others?

    Wow… this could be *huge*.
