Shakeup at LANL

From the ABQ Journal:

A respected publication that reports on the nation’s nuclear labs says there’s been a shake-up at Los Alamos National Laboratory in connection with the lab’s role in a radioaction leak at the country’s nuclear waste dump near Carlsbad.

Weapons Complex Monitor is reporting that LANL Director Charlie McMillan on Thursday “relieved several managers of their duties in relation to the site’s transuranic waste processing problems that have been linked to the radiological release at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant.”

The Monitor’s bulletin adds that the affected managers include Dan Cox, LANL deputy associate director of environmental programs; Jeff Mousseau, associate director of environmental programs; Kathy Johns-Hughes, Director of the LANL TRU (transuranic waste) Program; and Tori George, program director for regulatory management.

The four apparently have been reassigned.

Is this true that the managers were "re-assigned" and not fired? I am sure one of LANL's core, basic, fundamental missions is to NOT leak radiation into the environment. LANL managers could not manage such a fundamental task, yet this is not worthy of being fired? Please tell me this is not true, and if it is, please tell me what level of incompetence by managers IS required to be fired.

Great, when you're trying to make a point in favor of science and the Lab, do it with mangled grammar and spelling. Thanks a lot.

How's Charlie "GQ" McMillan doing.

Has his fall fashion silk suit from Louis Vutton arrived yet? I'm sure he'll look faaaabulous in it for his next All-Hands.
