They were too busy reporting on who Kennedy was sleeping with. Oh wait!
The press was too busy covering up Kennedy's womanizing to notice a near-nuclear disaster.
Except they didn't report it first. This has been known for awhile. It's just that some more details have come out.
and then they built nuke power plants to keep the danger alive for ever.
The Crystal River nuke plant will take 50 years to shut down, and then be watched for decades after.
Talk about kicking the can down the road... your grandchildren will have cost's for your electric use... along with the danger they won't have a choice but to take care of.
should I blame democrats or republicans for this?
I think this is getting (re)play because a lot of the near catastrophes are the subject of a new book:
There are some things that "my bad" doesn't adequately cover. I think this would be one of them.
Nope. This goes straight by "my bad" and into full on "you see what had happened was"
Almost to the precipice of, "We regret to inform you that Raleigh has been accidentally obliterated, but crews are working overtime to determine the source of the blast."
I also heard - perhaps it is MAD folklore - that in 1967, on the highest alert, we came the closest ever to launching a nuclear attack on the Ruskies.
I couldn't find it on the top 10 list, but maybe the details are still secret.
The movie Fail-Safe comes to mind when reading about this.
That's scary stuff.
I read the novel back in the day, but don't believe I saw the movie. Seemed very realistic. Anyway, it was indeed a sad ending, in the book.
Probably the movie adapted it faithfully, then. Brilliant movie, too... Fonda, Mathau, Hagman, probably others I am not remembering.
I saw that movie. What was it called?
Where would we be without ACC football? If they nuked the Duke football team, would anybody notice the difference?
