Amen Paul and swampcollielover- I grew up and in my declining boomer years continue to live less than 2 airline mile from an AFRB that formerly was a SAC base w/ B-47s...B-52s..Kc-97s...KC-135s and a full squadron of various fighter planes. I grew up w/duck and cover and by 3rd grade the non-glass hallways , knees on floor , foreheads up to wall, hands clasped behind neck to avoid spinal injury in case of N-bomb. By 4th grade some of us from movies (Yucca Flats , etc..) figured out we were dead anyhow. I am convinced some of my generation by the Cuban Missile Crisis were nihilists. It led to LSD , etc. and Vietnam/hippies etc. Daddy did you do dope...Uhh ..Bill and Hilary Clinton ..Baby Bush where were you for 18 months while assigned to the Texas Air National Guard. Now we have only 18 C-5Bs and a few 130s. Oh yeah ..party on Dr.Strangelove !!!
