Hope I didn't create impression that I thought they were doing anything wrong because I don't believe that and I do fully support the purchases.

Just a pet peeve when I see not-for-profits somehow not subject to the same disclosure rules that apply to publicly traded corporations. This is an enterprise with almost $2 billion in assets, almost $1 billion in 2010 revenues, which includes $138 million in public grant money, $393 million in dues and donations from the public, and $293 million in land sale income, a portion of which is presumably from public funds. While the rules may not require the disclosure, why not lay the information out in the open and remove all doubt. A little sunlight is a good disinfectant.
