Thought I'd share this, interesting retrospective....

End of October, 1962....

Cuban Missile Crisis comes to a non-catastrophic end

Some "new guy" starts his gig on this thing called the Tonight Show. Somebody named Johnny Carson

Bobby "Boris" Pickett's "Monster Mash" about finishes its climb on the popular Top 40.

Strange blend of seriousness and silliness eh?


Any thoughts?

I guess we came a lot closer to "the end" than people realized at the time. I saw part of a program last night, one Russian sub was just about ready to hit the button.
The fleet commander stopped the sub commander from launching at the last minute.
