    And… another one bites the dust.

    JWST will continue to slaughter, ransack, and pillage SMD – and spare no one.

  2. Hallie Wright says:

    Slaughter, ransack, and pillage? Yoder is a capable administrator with Constellation experience, and just finished serving capably as Astrophysics director. Rick Howard did a huge job, basically reorganizing JWST, and did it successfully. If it’s time for him to retire, he certainly deserves it.
