FBI Fingerprint Lab Featured in National Geographic

The Clarksburg, West Virginia FBI Fingerprint Lab was featured in the May issue of National Geographic, in their monthly ZipUsa segment. Part of the story is available online here:

"...it's here, thanks to the powerful West Virginia Senator Robert Byrd, that the FBI put its National Crime Information Center, its Brady Act gun check headquarters, its Uniform Crime Reports data center, its Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System, as well as super-sophisticated computers to keep it all humming."

This is great positive recognition for our state, on an international scale, thanks to Senator Byrd. Still, some republicans obsess about replacing him with Smelly Moore Capito, because Senator Byrd has had the courage to question Dubya's actions, particularly when he lied us into the war in Iraq.

I personally believe that Senator Byrd is the finest Native Son this state has ever produced - except for my father, of course.
