BURIED deep beneath the Montana soil in America’s northwest are 150 giant Minuteman III nuclear missiles — locked, loaded and ready to go.

They are 20 times more powerful than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima and can reach any target on the planet in half an hour.

The Minuteman program is what I constantly heard about on the news when I was a kid, back in the early 1980's. Lots of silos in Kansas... mostly empty now. My old poly sci professor used to live in that area... told me that was a strange feeling.

Y'all remember a movie called "The Day After"?

Very clearly. It came out when I was in HS. Since it was made-for-TV, it got a lot of attention. Since I lived in Kansas at the time, it got a *lot* of local attention!
