“You mean Kyoto, right??”
Drat, I goofed.
Thanks for catching it, maybe I won’t embarass myself again on that point.
Lord knows I’m mess up plenty of other things!

Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson struck Kyoto from the list because
of its cultural significance, over the objections of General Leslie
Groves, head of the Manhattan Project. According to Professor Edwin
O. Reischauer, Stimson “had known and admired Kyoto ever since his
honeymoon there several decades earlier.”
