Quote of the Week

“Their (nuclear arms) distance from conventional arms — to resort to a football metaphor — was roughly that between getting a new kind of shoe allowing better traction in tackling the other team’s players, on the one hand, and on the other, developing a device capable of instantly destroying not only the other team, but also one’s own, to say nothing of the playing field, the spectators, the stadium, the parking lot and the television rights.” – John Lewis Gaddis
