I don know if you noticed, but the Duchess of Cambridge has had her baby. I not much fussed about the royal kid, as it happens, but I expect to be on very familiar terms with him. Information about the youngest Windsor is pervading the atmosphere, like the ashes of that Icelandic volcano that filled up the sky a few summers ago, grounding flights worldwide.

He says the Civil Defense recommendations weren’t as futile as people think, especially in the early days of the Cold War, when nuclear weapons were less powerful and the Soviets had a smaller arsenal.
