Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There's a historical anecdote about a conversation between Kurchatov (father of Russian atomic program) and Lavrenti Beria (last chief of Stalin's secret police, who was personally responsible for the bomb project). When Beria tried to teach Kurchatov how do deal with some program, he got an answer: "We didn't read each other's scientific papers, but, I am afraid, for different reasons".
