No Fair! Sandia Snags 'Award'!
One of the Annual Awards for the year that just ended goes to Sandia
National Labs --
"The 'National Lab for Hire' Award to Sandia National Labs, for letting a
parade of young-earth creationists promote their pseudoscience and hawk
their books in the Steve Schiff Auditorium."
-- From the March/April 2007 issue of "Skeptical Inquirer."
[But wait a minute: Doesn't LANL get one for Anastasio's bringing Judith Miller to the Lab, she who is a former reporter from the New York Times, who aided President Cheney in his rush to war in Iraq? (Remember the WMDs that weren't?) Seems a little unfair; Sandia always gets the award, while Los Alamos get left holding the bag ... At least LANL didn't score in the Darwin Awards. -As far as I know.
Pat, I believe the vote is still out on that one. Check back in a year or two.
But it ain't even a little bit funny.
