You may have heard that there's trouble at Los Alamos National Laboratory. They've lost a few disk drives, among other things. Maybe they had bomb blueprints on 'em, I dunno.
In a unrelated development, oil prices have passed $45 per barrel.
I thought you ought to know:
- The Bush Administration has proposed a replacement for the University of California as the manager of Los Alamos. The company they propose is Haliburton.
- With oil prices at an all-time-high, the administration has resumed buying oil for the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
As the Bolsheviks used to say: the worse, the better.
