With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy…

From Anonymous:

With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy…

You know you may be the director of a formerly great national laboratory if you believe that Physics Today is not peer reviewed, but that Director's colloquia are.

You know you may be the director of a formerly great national laboratory if you believe that just because the statistics that you use to prove your point are incorrect and concocted, the moral force of your argument is what matters.

You know you may be the director of a formerly great national laboratory if you define an IWD as a one page document with an oil stain, and then immediately issue a 180 page encyclical outlining the process with 12 pages of required forms that need to accompany the aforementioned 1 page oil stained document.

You know you may be the director of a formerly great national laboratory if you think that the terms "butthead" and "cowboy" are synonyms.

And finally, you know you may be the director of a formerly great national laboratory if you think that an organization like PS, whose only mission in life is to create mountains of paperwork and byzantine process, will simplify if asked to do so politely. Can you say "IRS"?

I'd like to add one: you might be (a cowboy) director of a formerly great national laboratory if you think you can order nuclear physicists from the commisary.
