    President Kennedy showed his grit and intelligence during this time. Too bad Trump has neither attribute.
    Technical correction: Here is the address for the headquarters of NASA:

    NASA · Address
    300 E St SW, Washington, DC 20024

    Houston has the Manned Spaceflight Control Center, not the headquarters. Just sayin'.....

    I know, but in 1961 NASA had a large administration building on Telephone Road in Houston, Texas, about three miles from my house.

    Well, and I'm sure there are administration buildings at Cape Kennedy/Cape Canaveral as well. In fact, I KNOW there are.

    The gov't still thinks the duck and cover thing is going to work to convince the public they can be safe from a nuclear blast? This isn't the 1950's and people aren't that stupid. Oh, wait Trump is President=stupid people, never mind.
    Silly miltary authorities giving out sheets of survival tactics. Apparently not only is it FAKE its LOL funny.

    Boy oh boy, do I have a different concept of 'funny'.

    I remember these drills too but during the Cold War when I attended school in Michigan. Since then, bomb drills have turned into active shooter drills but I wonder if we will see them start again since we have a leader who is subtly threatening nuclear war.

    NASA is now located in Webster, TX, which is only about eight miles down the road from the offices that used to be in Houston. Still too close to a nuclear explosion in my opinion.

    They're probably on full alert thanks to the orange sphincter.

    He promised "FIRE and FURY like the world has NEVER seen".

    Not what I would call 'subtle'.

    Why would you feel sorry for someone that agreed to work for Trump? It's not like someone twisted his arm.
