M.A.D. and The Man who Prevented WW3

Here is a link to an article printed in Time magazine about a man that apparently had the "rocks" to stand up to group think and say "maybe we aren't being attacked by the U.S." If you are under the age of 30, you may not remember M.A.D. but this man made sure we never had to test the theory out.

The sad part about this story, is the guy did the right thing, and all he did was go pay for it. Typical tragic flawed protagonist, seeking justice in an unjust world.

Have a read, it's a good reminder that doing the right thing isn't always easy. I'm glad he made the right decision, since it allowed me to meet the love of my life and allow our daughter to be born.
