Supervisor of troubled Texas nuclear plant moved to Los Alamos (Podcast)
LOS ALAMOS (2007-02-23) -- The federal official in charge of overseeing a Texas nuclear-weapons plant where workers are complaining about safety issues has been transferred to oversee the Los Alamos National Laboratory's nuclear weapons operations.
Los Alamos Site Office Manager Dan Glenn has not returned our call for comment. But we talk to a watchdog group about charges critical of the Texas facility that were aired in a Los Angeles Times article.
Listen to the story.
Thanks, guys, hope to be able to return the favor some day.
The hands-on time for PX people who REALLY work on nuclear explosives is less than 3.0 hours per day.
POGO's just spreading their normal propaganda and driving costs through the ceiling and less work accomplished everyday.
Everytime the Union boys want a raise they start talking about safety issues.
As for Dan Glenn, IMO he is one smart cookie and not your normal NNSA dunderhead.

The use of the word "dunderhead" in 2/23/2007 6:17 PM's post indicates that he is a member of an older demographic, perhaps not too well educated. I vote for NNSA. The post is typical of NNSA's response whenever criticism is aimed at them: blame the DOE contractor.
