The key is to identify the value of each system, and then attempt to leverage that in favor of the ACS.

  1. Geez. I didn’t realize how soon NY Times articles disappear into the archive and cost $3 to get out! I’d advise making a PDF with Adobe and offering to send a copy to anybody who inquires. I think that’d be safe legally. That’s what I’m going to do from now on.
