I was pretty sure the the world would be destroyed by nuclear war before I hit 30.
I suspect this inner surety of the world's imminent destruction is part of the reason I'm not particularly ambitious about what job I work.
Anyways, the point is, I'm very happy to read this news.
The last of the nation's most powerful nuclear bombs — a weapon hundreds of times stronger than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima — is being disassembled nearly half a century after it was put into service at the height of the Cold War.
The final components of the B53 bomb will be broken down Tuesday at the Pantex Plant near Amarillo, the nation's only nuclear weapons assembly and disassembly facility.
