  1. Folks, some of you have asked if we were trimming our forums since there are no sports at the moment. We’re going to keep everything open on the forums to provide a sense of normalcy here. It’s our hope Gator Country can be a place of comfort for you during these crazy times. Be safe my friends and take care. -Ray and the GC staff. GO GATORS IN AL KINDS OF WEATHER!

    Reading Fred Kaplan’s “The Bomb” now about the history of nuclear war strategy and he covers the significant impact of this beautiful piece of oratory, which simultaneously signaled US resolve but also signaled to the Soviets that we didn’t seek to preemptively destroy them by force, and recognized the lunacy of nuclear war, creating the atmosphere for a generations of nuclear arms control treaties.

    It really is a wonderful address, penned by Ted Sorensen
