Give that hut to George Obama.

My father was stationed at White Sands and saw Trinity. He was about to go up with a flight (he was an instructor) when they were given a message to stand down. He said that it was like the sun had come up in an instant - he could see every rivet of his plane. My mother heard the blast 20 miles away. Of course, they told everyone that an amunition dump had exploded.

Heh. I thought they found some dead bodies in the cabin that would keep it from being a park or something!
Pretty cool that some of their stuff was going on in log cabins. The contrast in technology is pretty neat - 1800’s architecture welcomes in the Atomic Age.

I don’t like the feds buying up land to make national parks but I would love to go visit some of the bomb sites and craters.

They could do a lot to restore/recreate the atomic pile in the squash court at Stagg Field, site of the first controlled nuclear reaction, and Argonne National Laboratory, where subsequent experiments were conducted, to get them away from urban areas for safety reasons.
Historians and federal agencies reply that preservation does not imply moral endorsement, and that the remains of so monumental a project should be saved as a way to encourage comprehension and public discussion.
Has anyone watched Oliver Stone's questioning of the morality of what took place when the U. S. dropped the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? The guy really humps it for all it's worth.
There's no doubt in my mind where this is headed, and if it stops short of war crimes charges being brought, I'll be surprised.

(Hurricane Sandy..., a week later and over 60 million Americans still didn't have power.)
But critics have faulted the plan as celebrating a weapon of mass destruction, and have argued that the government should avoid that kind of advocacy.
Ah. Thank God for the Atom Bomb
Obviously the federal government needs MORE land, I mean they don't have jack squat for land in the western states anyways...
So yeah they NEED MORE LAND!
