I must protest a glaring inaccuracy in Patrick Symmes’ otherwise fascinating account of the cybersnoops at FinCEN (“Caught in the Net,” 8/9).

Symmes refers to the distinctive building on Route 123 in Tysons Corner that houses FinCEN as “the doughnut building.”

Having spent many ghastly years employed in the same neighborhood, I can attest that it is in fact called by the more accurately evocative title, “the toilet bowl building.”
