"Wow! That’s a powerful and inspiring mission that would certainly get me out of bed and into work every morning. It doesn’t get bogged down in the what-we-do or how-we-do-it. And it is outwardly focused, offering a value proposition to the neighborhood, the community and the country."

"Inattentional blindness is just one example of a more general feature of our visual experience known to cognitive scientists as ‘the grand illusion’.
