I know John Noble somewhat, having talked to him at length at some 
photo shows and over dinner.  I know he is a Knight of Malta, which 
some have said means he is likely tied in tightly to the American 
intelligence community.  He says he spent quite a few years in Soviet 
custody.  My understanding is that he got control of KW back but then 
lost it again a couple of years ago to his bankers when times got 
tight.  A shame, since they were working on some very interesting 
product ideas at the time.
