Take a gander at the screen shot I took early this morning from Drudge. The next few photos below are from a bid invitation my wife received a few days ago from iSqFt ( a program that one has to sign up for to get bid notifications ).

I had to take a picture of the printed e-mail because my scanner is not working at the moment, I redacted my wifes info. The project zip code is 76544, Killeen, Texas. The facility will be 57,000 sq. ft.
