Barbara Kelly: Suggests a tweeting ‘Dr. Strangelove’

Wednesday, April 19, 2017


“What me worry?” is not a reasonable response when within the space of about 24 hours the news is 1) that our country has just dropped the biggest (non-nuclear) bomb ever and 2) that we are deploying warships to the sea bordering an enemy country.

And whether or not our army is the best, the very best, I did not find our president’s subsequent enthusiasm reassuring.

I would like to direct a question to readers who remember the movie “Dr. Strangelove.” Might an updated version of the film merely require that instead of whooping and waving his hat, the cowboy be tweeting?
