I had originally proposed one of these free electron lasers for the University of Wisconsin at Madison, under the umbrella of the Wisconsin Institute of Discovery. It was a colossal failure. Not only did the UW not get a free electron laser, but then the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy canceled the Synchrotron Radiation Center in Stoughton, and the Wisconsin Institute of Discovery turned out to be the butt of jokes. That’s so sad, John D. Wiley.

We’ll just have to leave it to the Europeans again I guess.

But all that empty farm land in Stoughton is making WARF rich.

And big buildings means big building contracts!

You can’t expect scientists to do things.

It’s all about patents now.

And big buildings.
