discoveryThis pin does not represent any logo I could find of the Discovery Channel, but I choose to link it. I visited Spy: Secret World of Espionage at Discovery Times Square in New York, a couple years back. Apparently that exhibit has since closed. That’s too bad. It was extraordinarily expensive, even had a gift shop. The exhibit focused on tradecraft, and was very interesting. Their advertising said:

Declassified CIA artifacts and stories revealed!
