Whenever a story about one of the nuclear labs and security pops up, I am reminded of the time I was visiting a friend in Los Alamos, NM. His wife worked in the security office, and he was a local police officer. I was doing a ride-along with him and he stopped by his wife’s office to say hello. We parked out back, and let ourselves in via the back door, which was propped open with a chair.

And that is my story of security at a top-secret nuclear laboratory.
