Yes, it's that time again. After observing the sporadic anti-Pogo comments on recent posts, particularly those comments which impugned the accuracy of any Pogo news release which featured LANL, I felt that the LANL Public Affairs office deserved equal billing. This comment from the Thoughts on the latest security imbroglio post is our Comment of the Week:
If Lab Public Affairs were commissioned to spin the crucifiction this is how it would have been done:
Today there was a hammering incident. It was a signficant event, but under no circumstances should the public be alarmed. All nails have been accounted for, and the risk to the general public of accidentally stepping on one is minimal. Ceasar's spokesperson, Kevin Roark, said "the Emperor regrets the loss of nails in the past and takes very seriously his responibility ensure the safety of all who inhabiting his domain. It is now required that nails be under dual control and fully accounted for both before and after each and every event."
