POGO's Less Visually Appealing Social Network Analysis

If you read the New York Times' Week in Review yesterday online or in the paper, you may have feasted your eyes on Bill Marsh's excellent graphic portrayal of the Brent Wilkes web of defense contracting-related connections.  Well...I tried to something similar a few weeks ago when some of the more recent pieces of the ever-expanding web were getting noticed, namely those related to Lowery, Lewis and Co. and, separately, the ones connected to Foggo, Goss and Bassett.

I'm posting this just for fun, but, as with Marsh's piece, you'll notice that Wilkes naturally seems to be at the center.  Too bad I don't have Marsh's and the Time's graphic talent.
