Inquisition at JPL: Pocket protectors with the right stuff

From an editorial in the LA Times today:

As custodians of a great human adventure, the men and women of JPL deserve better from their own country than to be victimized by a shabby crowd of apprentice Torquemadas.* By resisting this bargain-basement inquisition, JPL plaintiffs have rendered us all yet another service. Who would have guessed that the folks with the pocket protectors would turn out to be the ones with the right stuff?
* Torquemada was a prominent leader of the Spanish Inquisition.

I'm not sure why this hasn't gotten more media coverage. Are there similar things going on at other organizations?
