Yawn ... cutting science funding isn't newsworthy.
And then again, why don't some of those directors at National Labs, quit their jobs and hand their headcount plus pay over to hiring more scientists instead of adding meager postdocs.

With all the money most institutions that benefit the most from scientific break through, at tax payers expense, I think they can afford it. Let's face it, these companies aren't exactly humanitarians, trying to save the world, so lets get real. They are billion dollar industries, that sell what we(us tax payers) paid for research and development for. And as for missing out on cell phones so small you swallow it, due to possible future research, well do we really need it that bad?
