I just read your Comments of the Week, Saturday Edition post, and I thought I'd send you in a couple of thoughts on it. Sorry I have not been reading your blog regularly, I've been kind of busy and traveling a lot.
The comments about how DOE and LANS have been so successful to date in their efforts to "re-mission" LANL kind of caught my attention. I'm in Washington, DC to chair a session at a simulation conference next week, and I'm staying at the conference hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue just a block from the White House. It's a nice, $420 per night 10 story hotel, with lots going on.
The downstairs area below the lobby has some sort of society event going on tonight -- lots of people in formal evening wear heading down he escalator to attend some kind of performance. What caught my eye was this (attached image) being projected on the wall where people riding down the escalator could not miss it. Apologies for the crappy quality of the picture, all I had with me was my cell phone.
In this town, Bechtel buys what it wants.
