Why is this blog titled, "LLNL-The True Story", when the bulk of the threads have zero to do with LLNL and everything to with LANL?

Look everyone knows Bechtel is going to win. How can it be otherwise? The NNSA labs have been in a steep decline for some time, having Bechtel win just keeps everything on the downhill trajectory. Maybe Russia really is behind alot of weird things happening in the United States. One thing for sure our enemies have been very very pleased with what has happened at the NNSA labs and would be very happy if Bechtel wins. With that we can be assured that Bechtel is going to win.

Although not identical, LANS and LLNS are twins in terms of their corporate composition. Because of this close family relationship, the caliber of LANS leadership measured by achievements and failures, has a clear relationship to its sibling LLNS, and vice versa.

There was an adage going around at Livermore that stated "When LANL sneezes, Livermore starts taking pneumonia shots." The gist of the statement is that as the senior and "most important" lab in the complex, when screwups happened there, the rest of the complex knew that castor oil would be needed to be taken by the rest of the weapons complex whether they were guilty or not.

The real and perceived failures at Los Alamos prompted the contract change for them and Livermore. LANL had their contract changed a year before Livermore so those in California can get a view of the boulder coming down the hill before it hits them.

And face it, most of the drama and juicy gossip happens at LANL. There were many a time when I was looking at the old LANL blog and I would say "You've got to be kidding me." When it comes to office back stabbing, security failures and technical boondoggles, I tip my hat to the folks in New Mexico. Livermore sure isn't an innocent in these matters but LANL is the expert.

LANL is a $&@! show. It is ridiculous some of the simple stuff I see daily that would blow other people's minds.

To be fair to LANL, a lot of this has to do with it being in New Mexico. Sandia also has some crazy stuff as well, it is just the nature of the state.

Agreed, the natives (a large majority) have no business working at Nuclear Weapons Labs ...give New Mexico back to Mexico.

Purdue. Current home of Tomas Diaz de la Rubia, who was frog-marched out as LLNL Deputy Director over a sex and funds waste scandal. I wonder who is the Purdue nominee for Director...

At least it checks the box for diversity.

Tomas is ideal. As a Spaniard he could become the new Viceroy of LANL and New Mexico. Return the territory to his king!

LANL needs a competent, scientifically respected, politically attuned, personally well-adjusted new Director. Unruly, uncontrolled egos (i.e., "Tomas" - why does everyone call him by his first name? It is kind of a creepy homophilia) are not qualified. Just be normal psychologically, stable in denmeanor, well-spoken, and calm in crises. No such people exist in the national labs' retinue? That is very sad and frightening.

They do still exist (Bob Webster for example) but the director position is now a political position if you haven't noticed so you must be a sociopath as a pre-qualification.
