Did you know that in 1961 two armed nuclear weapons were accidentally dropped in a tobacco field 60 miles from NC State? The uranium from one has never been found. Do you sleep well at night thinking that the 17,000 warheads still around are all safe and in the hands of capable people who have fail proof technology that prevents something from going strange? Well, you haven’t read Eric Schlosser’s new book. He argues persuasively that we’ve been incredibly lucky. So far.
