"Few journalists bother to visit Nagasaki, even though it is one of only two cities in the world to 'meet the atomic bomb,' as some of the survivors of that experience, sixty-six years ago today, put it. It remains the Second City, and 'Fat Man' the forgotten bomb. ... Yet in many ways, Nagasaki is the modern A-bomb city, the city with perhaps the most meaning for us today. For one thing, when the plutonium bomb exploded above Nagasaki it made the uranium-type bomb dropped on Hiroshima obsolete." (08/09/11)
