High Praise Heaped High! and other Refreshing News

From an intra-agency newsletter on the intra-net:

"Praise for raising morale raises morale of morale raisers/improvers."

The same newsletter has a feature for noting updates on their intranet called "Intranet Refresh Refresh" in which one item mentioned the posting of last month's newsletter to the intranet, with the comment "how very meta."
Thanks ever, Pheas!

Thanks, Mark!
