Last week, LANL was closed upon a security review from National Nuclear Security Administration director and Bush appointee, Linton Brooks and Bush apointee Deputy Energy Secretary Kyle McSlarrow who are now back in DC. The reason for closing the all nonessential sections of the lab (even high security areas like the museum and cafeteria) was a missing removable storage device that contained classified material.
From the Albuquerque Journal:
The incident is the latest in a series of embarrassments that have prompted federal officials to put the Los Alamos management contract up for bid for the first time in the 61-year history of the lab that built the atomic bomb.
Gee, I wonder if Haliburton wil get the contract worth billions of dollars? We're going to start a new cold war.
The DC11 media archives are now online... you can get real audio and video of all the talks you missed because you were too drunk to see them.
Verizon has announced it will be rolling out Fiber on the last mile in HB as well as two other cities.
