No-hitters

Yesterday Ervin Santana threw a no hitter, the 3rd of the MLB season, and 9th for the Angles organization. The question is, are no hitters becoming a regular part of the game or are they still special every single time? There has been 273 no hitters thrown all time, with the most note-able being Nolan Ryan who threw a major league record 7 no hitters over his career. What was special about Santana's no hitter, he gave up a run, which hasn't happened since Darrly Kile for the Astros won his no hitter game 7-1. Even though a no hitter is thrown doesn't mean the team is guaranteed a win, 3 times a pitcher has thrown a no hitter and still lost the game. Ken Johnson, Steve Barber, and Andy Hawkins have all thrown no hitters but lost the game. So again with the recent string of no hitters is the no hitter thinning out as one of the most exciting things for baseball, or is still exciting every time?
