The Day when Time and Gravity did Collide!

Late Wednesday evening, when doing my nightly "News Crawl" via my NFB Newsline for The Blind telephone news service, I ran across the following story decrying yesterday signified the 70th anniversary of an unbelievably bright light being witnessed at Trinity, New Mexico on July 16, 1945!

As this was either somewhat ironic, overly karmic or symbiotic that I would be posting my RUSh R40 story on the exact same day in history of thee first Atom Bomb going BOOM!

Or the Synchronicity of posting my epic RUSh R40 tome Thursday, since after all the band created another hit song on the Atom Bomb test's "Half-life" (30yrs ago) appropriately titled Manhattan Project on their Power Windows album - perhaps in honour of the anniversary?

As Y'all recall the utter devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki right?

Imagine a time when it all began
In the dying days of a war
A weapon that would settle the score
Whoever found it first would be sure to do their worst
They always had before...
(Lyrics” RUSH; Manhattan Project, Power Windows, 1985)
