A new report released today says a new underground physics lab will cost the Energy Department from $1.2 to $2.2 billion.

Though I know the science is worthwhile and we should be doing it, I also can’t help ask this question: Where the hell are we going to get the money?

    From the treasury?


    Isn’t that where all the money comes from?

    Seriously – given the debt grows $4 billion a day, its not even worth worrying about $2 billion dollar pysics project. I mean thats like being out of work and not having this months mortage payment, and worry about if you can afford to leave a tip for the watress for your sandwhich.

    Perspective is everything.
