Today’s news and information gleanings from here and there.

Quote for today … “”It’s kind of crude the way we drop them, but obviously the impact is pretty impressive.”– Dr. Conrad Crane, the chief of historical services at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center, in this article about the dropping of the Mother of All Bombs … and there were no civilians living in the area?
