Los Alamos contract to be decided soon

LOS ALAMOS, NM, United States (UPI) -- The fate of U.S. nuclear exploration is waiting on the Department of Energy to decide who will get a contract to operate Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Los Alamos has been run by the University of California since the lab`s inception in 1943, but a series of embarrassing missteps have forced the contract with UC to be opened up for a bid, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.


Full Story

So, the intrepid journalist gets one out of three right, which isn't too bad these days, given the sloppiness of most of those who claim to be investigative reporters:

"The contract was opened up this year after half a decade of problems with UC, like under-trained employees, overly aggressive bosses and mismanagement of national secrets."

Now, can you guess which of these three things is true? (Hint: From the classic movie, "A Fish Called Wanda"--"What was the middle thing?")
Did anyone notice that the author of the Science News article is not listed?

When you are wrong, it is best to be anonymous!
