WHAT IS ESSENTIAL IN THIS TIME OF PANDEMIC?

Here in New Mexico, According to the governor’s orders:
“Businesses deemed essential that may remain open are: . . .
• nuclear material research and enrichment
• Laboratories and defense and national security-related operations supporting the United States
government or a contractor to the United States government”
So nuclear research and enrichment can go on at Los Alamos Lab, a major center for the development of nuclear weapons. That’s essential–for developing better ways to kill people while the rest of us are told to stay home to save lives.
