Griffin visits JPL

http://www.spaceref.com/news/viewsr.html?pid=20785

An excerpt:

In the future he expects JPL to continue to attract new business by competing
for missions, but, "If I think JPL is in danger of falling below having the
right amount of work to cover the JPL staff, then I will do as I have done at
other places � I will find you a mission. If you can win enough to keep up the
level you're at, you don't need me to do anything."

However, he discouraged JPLers from going after major new work that would drive
the lab's workforce beyond the current level. "If you kill more than you can
eat, I'll probably ask you to send some of that somewhere else."

"A gain in people at one center is a loss in people at another center, or it is
a removal of dollars from industry into the federal civil service," said
Griffin. "That's not acceptable. And it's not acceptable to be moving people and
moving significant numbers of jobs from one center to another."

In response to a question, Griffin also said he hopes Congress will not restore
cuts he made in the proposed fiscal year 2007 budget for scientific research and
analysis.

"I hope Congress won't restore it, because it will come at the expense
of a mission," he said. "The budget I put forward is the best budget I can do
given all the constraints I have. If you push on the bean bag somewhere, it will
pop out somewhere else. There will be other unhappy people, they will just be in
other zip codes."

Griffin cited the importance of placing humans and cargo in low- Earth orbit "an
essential first step" in the next stage of exploration. "It's got to be done
right," he said.


--------------------
"After having some business dealings with men, I am occasionally chagrined,
and feel as if I had done some wrong, and it is hard to forget the ugly circumstance.
I see that such intercourse long continued would make one thoroughly prosaic, hard,
and coarse. But the longest intercourse with Nature, though in her rudest moods, does
not thus harden and make coarse. A hard, sensible man whom we liken to a rock is
indeed much harder than a rock. From hard, coarse, insensible men with whom I have
no sympathy, I go to commune with the rocks, whose hearts are comparatively soft."

- Henry David Thoreau, November 15, 1853
