It’s a great surprise to me that I’m among the first to respond to this post. How is that possible? Regardless, I’ve want to commend you for having the courage and common sense to write these words. Back in the 1970’s, when I was still a young man, I often wondered why the U.S.S.R and the U.S couldn’t agree to dismantle all of their nuclear weapons and instead concentrate all of their highly skilled engineers to developing safer nuclear reactors? As the world became more complicated, advanced, and as nuclear armament proliferated, I eventually gave up any hope of nuclear disarmament ever becoming a reality. It saddens me. It’s also obvious that had the world taken a different path back then (e.g. Molten Salt Nuclear Reactors powered by Thorium) rather than continuing down the path to NHFA (nuclear holocaust for all) we’d be living of a far better, safer, happier planet than the one we currently share. I guess I’ll sign off with the age old statement of the 1970’s hippies: PEACE

Growing up near A US nuclear research & weapons production facility, my childhood friends and I would often casually talk of what WWIII would be like and how soon we might be obliterated. We casually calculated as best we could how long it would take for us to die if missiles were fire at the facility 30 miles away. Duck and cover were no longer in practice but many towns surrounding the facility had loud alarm horns leftover from WWII & maintained just in case. They Wouk go off daily at either 5 or 6 pm depending on the town. I’ve been contemplating WWIII all my life, unfortunately.

Dr. Lee, I appreciate your work, just want to bring to your attention what looks like a typo: Albert Einstein died in 1955, not 1953. Thank you for everything you do.

Dr Lee, a new Conman has been elected House Speaker. While he's a MAGA Fascist (election denial, pro-Trump, pro-insurrection, anti-abortion etc), he interestingly also is a SPIRITUAL religious fanatic. He thinks Gods has ordained him for the job. He also carries a Bible around. Very sad & bad times for House.
