SUBJECT: Holiday Message

As the Laboratory's winter break approaches, I want to thank all
of you for your dedication and hard work during the past year and
wish you and your loved ones an enjoyable holiday season.

This year marked a major milestone for the Laboratory, with the
first change in the management and operating contractor since its
inception. Your participation in this transition is greatly
appreciated, and your continued commitment to the success of the
Laboratory and its mission is critical to our success.

The holidays are traditionally a time to celebrate and reconnect
with family and friends, and I strongly encourage you to take
this time to do just that. Relax, be safe, and return in January
refreshed and ready to take on the many challenges that lay
before us. I am excited about what lies ahead for the Laboratory
and strongly believe that the best is yet to come.

Again, I offer my best wishes for an enjoyable holiday season and
an inspiring New Year.

Oh, I forgot to mention: my very special present to you, my beloved and trusted staff members:




I didn't have a chance to watch Mike's talk on Tuesday but heard whispers that he just announced he's creating yet more management overhead bloat by building a new division dedicated to cyber-security and, apparently at his own request, beginning a new policy of drug testing for all LANL staff. Is any of this true???
You know, Mikey has lots to be thankful for this holiday season. Let's count up all the reasons for why it is Good To Be Mike Anastasio:

1. Housing allowance
2. Car allowance
3. If-I'm-fired-I-get-a-Fucking-huge-Allowance
4. Golden Parachute Allowance (in case I'm not fired and get to leave when I choose to leave)
5. No Drug Tests
6. No Lie Detector Tests

Wow. Being Director is good, even it is being director of LANL.
what do you mean?
