Aug. 5, 2020: Tomorrow, August 6, marks the 75th anniversary of the atomic devastation of the city of Hiroshima.  Three days later, the city of Nagasaki met the same fate. On August 15, Japan surrendered to Allied forces.  Whatever our opinion regarding the use of the atomic bomb at that time, the event provides a warning regarding the possible consequences of modern warfare.  Writing in the early '60s when the Cold War threat of nuclear annihilation was on everyone’s mind,…
