    how I stopped loving the bomb and learned to worry:

    I just heard on the radio about this little, semi-alarmist riff on nuclear postures in the post-cold war. One reason to be optimistic: "The network connecting U.S. launch centers to its Minuteman missiles is still in some cases powered by Eisenhower-era computers." A guaruntee that they're not running Windows. Thank god.

    In short, America’s nuclear weapons program is back to mid-1980s levels of funding and activity, while public interest is stuck at mid-1990s levels. ... For today’s right wing, there is no such thing as a bad weapon–there are only bad countries. This thinking is represented starkly in American threats to use nukes against non-nuclear enemies, as stated in 2002’s official Nuclear Posture Review.

    So many pointless military programs, I can't keep track of them all.
