25 July, 1999; THE CIA is receiving 15% more applications for jobs as spies and analysts than it has in recent years, indicating that it may again be "cool" to be a spy. CIA Director Tenet, who has led the CIA's basketball team to victory and often has lunch with low-level employees in the cafeteria, is said to have restored the agency's sagging morale.
