Los Alamos National Laboratory's weapons activities would expand by $80 million and its supercomputer budget would grow by $47 million, two apparent bright spots in the federal budget proposal released in Washington.
A surprising decline in environmental cleanup, down $50 million, and a $49 million reduction in nonproliferation, headed the list of cutbacks at Los Alamos.
They were among the many gainers and losers in the administration's $2.7 trillion spending proposal released Monday. The Department of Energy's share held steady at $23.6 billion, although several new initiatives necessarily carved out cuts elsewhere in the department.
Speaking of DOE and National Nuclear Security Administration prospects, Sen. Pete Domenici, R-NM, summed up, "This is not a year of splendid growth at all, but rather a year when we could say we've held our own."

DOE will be proud of us as we follow in RFP's footsteps.
I thought grad physics was difficult, but I just cannot get my mind around that concept.
Did you *really* just ask if there were people who would not be missed if they were fired from LANL tomorrow?
You have truly picked a moniker that fits you, although it might have been better if if were something like "educatedawholebunchbuttotallylackingincommensense".
What part of the term "dead wood" is so difficult for you to assimilate?
But hey, let me f*cking try again. LANL could blow out 1000-2000 people that would never be missed. From deadwood to total j*rkoffs. Clearer?
And that's Jezus F*cking H-bar Christ.
Yeah, my buddy Fink is also suffering from HDD (Humor Deficit Disease).
We'll get over it. Good single malt scotch helps immensely.
