as you contemplate punishing LANL management and staff for their perceived performance please remember that there are TWO national labs.
they both do bombs but...
they are over 1000 miles apart. they have different management. even different employees. different cultures. different accomplishments. different weaknesses.
please try to keep this clear, and make sure you pin the tail on the right donkey this time.
your predecessors unwillingness to keep the two straight lead to the destruction of one very fine, high functioning institution and culture, so you could have the appearance of micromanagement control and toughness over the other.
please keep em straight. one is in california. that's a state on the pacific ocean. the other is in a state called new mexico. it's near mexico, but isn't actually mexico.
both are west of the hudson river.
