    Shucks. My old prediction for #30000 by the end of 2006 missed by less
    than a month. It did take a giant breakup to get there that soon,
    however, as I thought it might. 1999-025 certainly has the potential
    to become the biggest breakup ever. News reports suggest as many as 2
    million fragments may have resulted, most too small to be catalogued,
    of course. I don't think any launch has reached letter combination WS
    quite as rapidly.
