While we are discussing this horror, several things to remember:
A good deal of cultural property is kept in the Iron Mountain limestone mine
in rural NE Pennsylvania. I think the Corbus Collection of images is there
and there is a large amount of audio-video there as well.
Additional material is stored in a Salt Mine somewhere in Kansas, if I
I don't know how "bombproof" the vaults are at the NAVCC in Culpepper,
Virginia, but a good deal of our recorded heritage (audio and video) that is
held by the Library of Congress is located there.
But there is other good news:
shows that there is some benefit to low-level radiation, called hormesis
does not mention hormesis, it does say that Hiroshima and Nakasaki came
to life faster than expected.
Let's hope nothing happens. I doubt Mr. Un has a missile with enough range
to hit North America (well, maybe Attu).
