    Symptomatic of all big grant-dependent research, I’m afraid. Janis not withstanding….

    Berkeley Breathed couldn’t be more prescient or the topic more timely! Will we ever learn? It’s been 25(?) or more years since he drew this and nothing has changed.

    The Pentagon is merely threatening to cut off the funding… in other words, they will NOT ask you to return the money that you already got! So you will be allowed to keep Bolivia, the DeLoreans, any gift you might have bought for Candy, and all the money left… You had a good run, Opus!

    I once worked on a computer based interactive training program. Submitted my work to the Government with detailed instructions on how to set it up. After about two weeks I sat in a project meeting with the customer. They complained that it wasn’t working properly. My one and only question to the Government was “did you read the setup instructions”. They said no.

    I know quite a few physicists, but none of them drive Porsches.
