who will the new director(s) be?

Contributed by thief:

Since this strikes me as a wagering crowd...or at least one favorably disposed to making wildly exaggerated statements about matters where there is little legitimate information....are we making bets about who the new director will be?

Comments about my moderation

I started seeing people being hung up on the comments I delete after the fact.
If they violate posted blog rules, you bet I am going to delete them.
Comments about why I delete comments are, by their very nature, off topic and will too be deleted.
Don't bother making such comments. Instead, recommend a new post and let people comment on your post.

The Lame Ducks spill the beans!

The Lame Ducks spill the beans.

It is interesting to read these two articles:

Both are write ups of Miller's and Anastasio's testimony before the National
Academy of Science meetings. It seems that now that they have nothing to lose,they can begin to tell it like it is.

Miller points out that other entities of the government would like to do
business with LLNL but are thwarted by NNSA policy.

Anastasio indicates that the extra cost of running LANL by Bechtel inc. has "taken lot of flexibility taken out of the institution." Miller makes it a little more blunt by saying the change has caused a loss of morale and

When Miller was asked whether something should be read into the fact that the leaders of LANL, Sandia and LLNL were all departing, he smiled.

And once I leave this once great institution that is now circling the drain, I too will smile.
