I recently rated the first 13 presidents I have lived under (I excluded Joe Biden) and I ranked Harry Truman as number 1. I did that in large part because of his decision to use the atomic bomb to end World War II. That was arguably his most controversial decision and many people take the exact opposite view of it. We could debate that ad nauseam, but we will not today, at least not here. Today I want to explore a seldom, if ever, discussed repercussion of that decision.
When I awoke on Tuesday morning (I’m penning this a bit later in that am) one of the first things I did was check my phone and was greeted by an email saying that several major websites including the New York Times and CNN had been hacked. This is part of a major issue confronting America recently and I want to pontificate on it for a bit today.
