    Default Happy Mad Day!

    Happy May Day!

    Until I was 25, this was the day US media always had an easy opening segment to the news, reporting on the scary power of the USSR as displayed that year. What a different world we have now. Link

    It really sank into your thinking and your world view back then. Oddly enough, the Cold War made some things so easy...

    I saw the title "Mad Day" and I was hoping that I had just learned about a new holiday. Oh well.

    Given this start, I think this thread should be squelched.

    May day was a little less interesting this year, I know there were the usual may day protests in Europe mixed in with anti-COVID restrictions and some far right elements to start fights. Sizes of the protests were all smaller than usual, pandemic plus general apathy.

    Cold war did make a us vs them mentality easier.

    Does Mad Day celebrate Mutually Assured Destruction?
