DC television station tells some inside stories of Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, 50th Anniversary


On Oct. 15, Station WJLA (ABC Affiliate, Washington DC) aired a report on the opening of an exhibit at the National Archives about the Cuban Missile Crisis.


I will visit the exhibit as soon as practical.

This week marks the 50th Anniversary of the start of the Crisis.  I was an inpatient in the Clinical Center at NIH at the time (“psychiatric”), was allowed to go to George Washington University at night, and was the only patient who knew what was going on. 
Check the AP story by Peter Orsi, printed Tuesday in the Washington Times, "Cuban Missile Crisis Beliefs Endure after 50 Years", link here.

Check also the New York Times op-ed by Michael Dobbs (Oct. 17), "Eyeball-to-Eyeball: The Price of a 50-Year Myth,", link here
