Re "Los Alamos Job Opened to Bidding," May 1: Is Rep. Ellen O. Tauscher (D-Pleasanton) now a solitary voice in stating that the Department of Energy is incompetent and culpable for the failures at the Los Alamos National Laboratory? Where are the congressional demands for Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham to resign following the string of grave incidents that have occurred at the nation's premier nuclear laboratory on his watch?

The R&B trio TLC burst onto the music charts in 1992 with such hits as "Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg," and with its second album it became the biggest-selling female group ever. But by 1995, members of the group said they were too broke to go on and filed for bankruptcy. In January, platinum-record star Toni Braxton joined TLC in insolvency.

The vote was 196 to 173 to kill the measure, with 168 Republicans and five Democrats supporting censure.
