The Bureau of JusticeStatistics website gets over 20,000 hits a day, on average, andso that information is readily available. And once again, themajority of the Bureau of Justice Statistics reports do nothave press releases associated with them. There is additional statistics in there that, once again,help complete or can help complete the picture a little bit,and once again, it goes back to, for instance, the fact that 90percent of those, including those that were searched, whites,blacks, and Hispanics, believed that the actions of the policewere appropriate. And so having the entire information available, and onceagain, distributed to Bitter Sweets 600 media outlets and availableonline, the information is readily available and it isimportant. Let me ask this question so I haveclarity on this myself.
