Walter Cronkite, Bomb Thrower

On Friday night's drive home from the Nats game, I tuned in to WAMU, American University's NPR station, and found a special Peace Talks radio documentary hosted by Walter Cronkite on the "Lessons of Hiroshima." The primary lesson, according to Walter the World Federalist, is that "Nuclear weapons and human beings cannot coexist. In the end, I believe this is the most important lesson of Hiroshima. We must eliminate nuclear weapons before they eliminate us."
