This figure came out of the most recent Data Communications magazine.  The
cover had a picture of the parking garage with a cadillac and some
grandmother driving it near a secured door.  It had a dark, scary caption
"One-third of the internet's traffic runs through this underground parking
garage in McLean, VA.  Should you be scared?" or something similar.
