60 years ago today...

...the USA became the first nation ever to use a nuclear weapon in anger. A horrible anniversary, but one that has to be remembered.

Tuesday will mark the 60th anniversary of the last time any nation used a nuclear weapon in anger. So far. Let's hope it stays that way.

(And yes, I do feel the urge to go watch Dr. Strangelove, but I think perhaps bed instead.)
