And *if* University of Texas wins (which seems likely), the Bohemian Club "cult" finally loses control of Los Alamos after over 75 years and real, honest to goodness "cowboys" from Texas come into town and take over. Should be very interesting. I've already noticed more than the average numbers of cars roaming around town with Texas plates of late. Future lab managers scoping out the town and looking for homes to buy?

TX students are arriving, as they did last year.

Heard the announcement could still be today. Something is up as lots of looks of shock, even people saying that they will be leaving soon.

Hey, its Friday, and everyone knows that bad news is always released late Friday afternoon so the unwashed can stew over it all weekend long, leading to the desired mass exodus next week.

If it is Texas how is that bad news? Bad news would have been Bechtel. As for the UC bid, about half the people wanted it due to uncertainty however few people have been happy with the current management and have been worried that if UC wins we would have the same issues that we have now.
In general I would guess most 50% will be happy Texas wins 35% are neutral but optimistic and
15% LANS mangers are not happy. About 90% are happy that we got rid of Bechtel.

Overall sound like good news for LANL. Bad news for Bechtel, bad news for the LASG, and doubt UC even cares at this point.

To be fair to UC, they had been simply put in an untenable situation after WHL, after that all sorts of crazy things where thrown at them including threats of terminating the contract. It was pretty well understood that UC was forced to hire Nanos and the only reason they could not get rid of him right away was the DOE was threating to cut the contract. UC just kept giving in and giving in and we are left with the total complete mess that we have today. What UC should have done is just stood up to the nonsense in the first place, perhaps they would have been thrown out by the congress earlier but perhaps not in the end they lost the contract anyway. There is a lessen to be learned kids, it is that giving in and compromising will not save you in the end. The last man standing gets pity.

The ultimate villains are NNSA and DOE, but that is not surprising as they are simply part of the swamp.

UT or UC is fine as long as BWXT and Bechtel go away! TA-55 needs Jeff and his clowns to depart as soon as possible.

UC supported Nanos right to the bitter end. You can look it up on the web. The staff had to sign a petition to the NM congressional delegation demanding his removal before UC dumped the evil moron.

DOE DID terminate UC's contract, Congress didn't. UC was terminated for financial mismanagement, NOT for WHL.

Bechtel never had anything but a small role in running LANL. Two upper managers, that's IT, three deputy lab directors - two of which UC fired, and Bechtel had a very small scope. Claim otherwise and you're lying.

UC wasn't just a villain for supporting Nanos. UC was also as incompetent as the Three Stooges.
