WIRE AND STAFF REPORT
The formal document soliciting proposals for managing Los Alamos National Laboratory will take a little longer to finalize.
It's a little like the saga of three brick layers. The first brick layer was asked. "What are you doing." He replied, "I'm putting one brick on top of another brick." He was fired for a lack of vision. The second was asked, "What are you doing?" She responded, "I'm building a wall." She was fired for having a limited vision. The third was asked, "What are you doing?" He responded, "I'm building a cathedral that will soar high into the sky, lifting the spirits of all who see it; a monument to the spiritual nature of humanity." He was fired because he was supposed to be building a garage. The current RFP seems to be calling for a garage and not a cathedral. LM will bid the garage and not the cathedral. That will come later.
