"Today, no educational institution more symbolizes the magnitude of that moral corruption than the University of California. The UC system avidly continues to provide key management functions - serving as a prestigious air-freshener for the stench of annihilation technology - at the Livermore and Los Alamos nuclear weapons laboratories."
That's how UC retained a place at the LANL trough -- DOE likes a touch of corruption in its contractors. The bit about "prestigious air-freshener" is laying it on a little thick, however. Nanos, prestigious? Anastasio? Has the bar really been set that low?
