Writing black reports was a PITA.

One can misbehave to a certain extent. Just don't lie about it during the approval and renewal interviews.

Just looked it up and she had a Q clearance. I know that she never spoke about her time at the Mound Lab until the day DOE phoned and I answered. I was in the habit of doing that because there had been some annoying calls to the house at the time. Of course after the call the cat was well out of the bag.
