Bolden and Garver Talk To NASA Employees (Delayed Due To Fire Drill)

NASA Update with the Administrator and Deputy Administrator

"You are invited to join Administrator Charlie Bolden and Deputy Administrator Lori Garver for a special NASA Update on Tuesday, February 15, at 2:00 pm EST. During the event, the administrator and deputy administrator will discuss the agency's fiscal year 2012 budget request. The program will be broadcast from the Headquarters auditorium and carried live on internal television at Headquarters and the NASA centers. During the NASA Update, employees will be able to ask questions from Headquarters and participating NASA centers, or you can send e-mail questions to"

Reader note: "Who is talking to whom. The NASA budget update video presentation to NASA employees which was to be presented at 2 pm this afternoon was postponed until 3pm due to a fire drill at NASA HQ. You would think that this fire drill might have taken place at a different time of day or another day so as not to interfere with this much advertised live video event. If the right hand doesn't talk to the left hand, cut one off."

Keith's note: When I worked at NASA HQ (the old building) we used to joke that the almost-daily fire drills served a purpose since they got you out of meetings you did not want to be in so that you could find people out on the sidewalk who you DID need to talk to ...

Keith's 16 Feb update: I am told that this was a "real" fire drill. I am still waiting for someone at NASA to give me an official explanation since I get nothing but "fire drill" notes from people at HQ and around the agency.
