    Fascinating.  The article mentions the launch on June 30, 2005 of the final
    Titan IV from VAFB.  I take it that this is to be the next KH bird,
    presumably to replace USA 116.
    
    If this next launch is to be Lacrosse 5, I shall be sorry to see Lacrosse 2
    go.  Although I have only been observing satellites seriously for a year or
    so, I have become attached to these birds - but then I can get a bit
    sentimental at times.
    
    Best wishes,
    
    Bruce
