Yes, that’s right – I came upon this on CNN just now: a plan by the US to detonate nuclear weapons on the Moon.  I guess the turn of phrase “We Were Crazy Back Then” has special resonance when you think of the Moon as a place to put retaliatory nuclear arsenals.

I mean, sure, it was the ’50s, and we and the Soviets were both doing some pretty wacky things.  But this kind of tops the bill as far as wackiness goes.  Good Lord.
