  • A big event

    I must not have been paying attention when this happened because I don't remember it (Hmm--could be that memory loss thing I hear about... ). I listened to a presentation about it today--including interviews with some of the primary players--and was blown away (pun intended). YIKES!

    BTW, according to the narrator, the Titan II in this silo carried three times the power of all the bombs dropped in WWII--including the nukes!

    And here I thought causing a fuel fire in the Fort Knox motor pool was a big deal...
