The Palace of Malice

On February 7, 2008 the Los Alamos County Council voted to destroy the physical symbol of the Independence of Los Alamos.

On December 21, 2010 5 Members of the Los Alamos County Council, 2 of whom voted in the affirmative in the above cited action, voted to destroy the liberties and rights of the citizens of Los Alamos and to vacate the Charter which was the codification of the Independence of Los Alamos.

The Palace of Malice, akin to Nero's Golden Palace and destined to become home to Ozymandius, will be built upon a foundation of legal chicanery, ruthless manipulation, self-aggrandizement, wanton destruction, and the wholesale abuse of Public Trust and authority --- but at what cost, and borne by whom?

Reality Check -- No community of any size can long survive the destruction of its heritage, the dissolution of its freedoms, and the permanent division of its citizens.

10) Ain't Modern Grand?

Los Alamos loves modern technology. Hey -- its what we do. The Economic Mortality Plan calls for More Science And Tech and high paying jobs. Loftiness abounds. I'm reminded of an episode of Star Trek with a city floating in the clouds. And, of course, this is Los Alamos -- a Shining City On The Hill casting its beacon out Illuminating Northern New Mexico and bringing Light where once there was Darkness.

Reality Check: Next time you flick your bic to light a smoke or the barbie remember this -- you are using flint and steel -- striking two rocks togther to make Fire. Now don't you feel a bit Neanderthal?
