Looks like Ron Baalke and I won't be doing the Mars
Meteorite displays this year (or longer):

Subject: Open House Status

After considerable review of our Open House security,
logistics and cost requirements, we have decided it
would be in JPL's and the public's best interest not
to hold an Open House this year.

As you know, additional security measures have been
required at all NASA facilities. Currently, no NASA
center will hold a general public Open House activity
this year. We have looked at many options and
approaches, but in the end we have decided against
this year's Open House.

Telling the JPL story to the public remains an
important aspect of our work. In recent months we have
made focused efforts to increase the number of tours
the Lab offers during the normal work week. And over
the coming months we will be exploring alternate
methods to connect the public's enthusiasm for the
extraordinary work we undertake at the Lab on behalf
the nation. For instance, the year-long celebration
marking the 40th anniversary of Mariner 2 and the 25th
anniversary of Voyager offer us such opportunities.
Others activities are being explored as well,
prearranged weekend-tours.

So many of you have given so generously of your time,
imagination and hard work to make the JPL Open House
an event that grows in popularity and value each year.
We are determined to reinstate this major event to the
Lab's calendar in the near future.
