Spy exhibit has every angle covered

It takes quickness and agility to negotiate the Laser Maze at SPY: The Secret World of Espionage during the preview Thursday of the exhibit. The maze evokes a "Mission Impossible" feel. This first-ever public exhibition features artifacts from leading national intelligence agencies including the CIA and the FBI and the private collection of intelligence historian and spy technology author, H. Keith Melton. There's the axe used to kill Leon Trotsky, umbrellas that injects poison pellets, a spy satellite, a WW-II Wel-Bike that collapsed as a getaway vehicle, a piece of the Berlin Wall. The exhibit opens to the public Saturday.
