Security Clearances After The Navy Yard Shootings

 J. Robert "Machine Gun" Oppenheimer

Back in the old days, people needed security clearance so that the chances that they would pass secrets along to other countries would be considered to be small. Communist sympathizers and "pinkos" were suspect, along with various other "fifth columnists".

Now we need checks to make sure our fellow workers may not feel the urge in the future to shoot us!

These days, J. Robert Oppenheimer would not be checked for any communists in his past. He would be checked for strange visions of sub-atomic particles flying around and end-of-the-world stuff and imagining himself to be Shiva, the Destroyer !
