The recurring lack of adult supervision apparently continues from the University of Kallyfornia...[ why are they still in charge? ]
"I am shocked that in this day and age you can still have memory sticks," said Pete Stockton, a senior investigator with the Project on Government Oversight, a Washington, D.C.-based watchdog group. "This is how many years after Wen Ho Lee?"
Lee, a former lab scientist, pleaded guilty in 2000 to a single count of mishandling nuclear secrets. He had transferred information needed to design computer simulations for nuclear explosions to pocket-size portable computer tapes so he could have backup copies. He said he later threw the tapes away in a lab trash bin.
Yawn... Last weeks news to us out here. Same old sloppy accountability for classified info. Nothings changed from the Clinton years. It was better when you couldn't go up the hill to the town -- it was all off limits until the fifties and the single road had a guardshack.

Dave's not here, man.

Except I didn't hear any reeeaaalllyyy deep breaths.
In my home?
Damn, I was so whacked out on meth I didn't even know I brought them home.
Back when they were persecuting their own Lab Director from within (because he wanted greater discipline) some of the freaks who work there set up a blog. I must say, things there are far worse in terms of compromised people and Lefty freaks than at any other time in the history of the lab. They should shut it down and open a new one fresh somewhere.
