The U.S. Geological Survey on Monday notified 500 of the 2,190 employees in its geologic division, which includes its earthquake and volcano monitors and researchers, that they are being fired effective in 60 days. The cut in staff of more than 20% for budgetary reasons--by far the most severe in the agency's 116-year history--included 158 of the 750 division employees at the western regional headquarters in Menlo Park, but none of the 14 in its Southern California outpost in Pasadena.

Like thousands of other Americans in this time of corporate belt-tightening, Jim Waller has just taken a buyout, a one-time cash payment as an incentive to retire early. "I'm 54. I had put in 34 years," Waller said. "It was a very hard decision. I agonized until the last minute. . . . But I feel like I'm getting a start on a new career." That would all seem ordinary except for one thing. Waller's employer is not just another company but, as it is known to insiders, "The Company": the CIA.
