I have a t-shirt with that slogan on it.

I just heard about this the other day -- I'm hoping to take a trip to see it sometime in the not-so-distant future

Another possibility is Science on a Sphere (projected on the sphere rather than an active display): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science_On_a_Sphere I see they have one in at the McWane Science Center in Birmingham, AL -- perhaps a few hours away, by car, from you in Huntsville.

I found that one in Birmingham last night -- I hope to go down to see it in a few week's time

You might need a slightly bigger office to fit this one but, the globe that you want is hanging in the Tokyo Science museum: http://tokyotek.com/geo-cosmos-gigantic-globe-oled-display-video/ Watching realtime weather patterns on it and day and night images is pretty cool.

The other cool factoid about San Marino is that it is big enough to have had a Formula 1 Grand Prix but not big enough to have a track! :-P http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Marino_Grand_Prix

On the perhaps slightly positive side, there is a Science on a Sphere system at McWane Science Center in Birmingham, Alabama (http://www.mcwane.org/ ). This might be sufficiently close to you that you could go and see what future generations might have in a smaller and less expensive form. Also, my pessimistic view need not correspond to reality.
