The Institute was heard from in Iraq on Saturday night

The Richmond paper has this terrific article ("A VMI grad with eyes like 'two deep caves' directed the raid," 12/15) on Colonel James B. Hickey, a graduate of the VMI class of 1982, and commander of the 4th Army Division brigade that apprehended Saddam Hussein on Saturday.

It ends with this:

"For Richmonder Robert Louthan, another VMI classmate of Hickey's, words of Civil War general and one-time VMI professor Thomas J. 'Stonewall' Jackson came to mind. 'I sent out an e-mail recalling what Jackson said before Chancellorsville: "The Institute will be heard from today."'"
