I well remember the frightening days of the Cuban Missle Crisis, though I was ten years old. Vivid memories of my career Navy father staying at work for the duration, and my mother loading boxes into the car and boat should there be an invasion. The contingency was for us to take refuge at a favorite camping spot far away from our home in what was the Ground Zero of the day, Norfolk, Virginia.

Now I know who to thank for our safety. More luster has been removed from Camelot.
