Memorable Words

Pyramid's Omniscient Eye column isn't a group production, but we fact-check each other and occasionally contribute bits. The latest one was on nuclear weapons and I tossed in a couple of lines on how big a bomb can before it stops being useful. Not something I'd expect to have an impact . . . but Eric Funk noticed:
This sentence will haunt me for some time: "If destroying enemy cities is acceptable or desirable, you still have the problem of only wanting to blow up one country at a time."
I guess Eric won't want to borrow my copy of Herman Kahn's Thinking About the Unthinkable any time soon.
