Oops, there goes Slim Pickins

This sort of thing is disturbing any time, but in today's hurry up world of nuclear threats and nothing taken off the table, it just makes you think how dependent we are on a large group of religious fanatics to handle our nukes.

The religious fanatics being the US Air Force, or at least a large part of it.

Of course, we don't know that the fellows involved in strapping six nuclear armed cruise missiles to the wings of a B52 were waiting for the rapture, or just distracted because of more mundane mishegosh.
The Pentagon would not provide specifics, citing secrecy rules, but an expert said the incident was unprecedented, and pointed to a disturbing lapse in the air force's command and control system.
Then, there are other, more sinister theories about what happened out there, too.

Anyway, people, concentrate on your job, especially if you handle nuclear weapons.
