i understand the positive implications of the anniversarry of the bomb . . . but i think we celebrate the fact of it too much, and maybe don't think hard enough about the events that led up to it.

the important thing is 'what does it take to make an american president nuke people?' and 'how do we stop it ever happening again?'

we don't focus enough on the survivors, and in this culture of extreme survivors, i think the populations that survived the bombs qualify.

this has always been a sore spot with me. my first political poem was a letter to harry truman.

that is all.
