	You may be relieved to note that many people at the NIH read
the bionet.* newsgroups, so if Santa lives at the NIH then he/she may
be listening.  The usual problem, though, is who is going to pay for
all of these wonderful things.  Perhaps an answer might be found in
the long term savings on library shelf space, buildings, etc.

	This is more than just an NIH jurisdictional issue
unfortunately.  It may be of interest to note that Senator Gore is
pushing a national networking initiative and this may be a good place
to begin rallying support.

Ho, ho, ho!
