Project Pluto

I learned two things from this brief on Project Pluto

  1. there can be scarier things in the world than multiple independent warhead thermonuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles (namely multiple independent warhead thermonuclear intercontinetal cruise missiles that spew a plume of radioactive exhaust all along it’s tree-top tickling path), and
  2. the making of cheap American beer is a more lucrative industry than the nuclear powered missile industry.

I would like find a little comfort in these facts, but I expect you can excuse my hesitation.
