Great! I'm glad to hear Mr. Carr is all about sharing information. I 
take it to mean that we will get the full story about what happened at 
Heartland first, to show that he is serious about sharing information. 
Afterall, by his reasoning, if he shares this type of information with 
the world, then he may help prevent another intrusion like it.

While Mr. Carr gathers his notes, he can look over at 
http://datalossdb.org/ for a great place for information on previous 
incidents. If only he had looked at it before.
