Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Missiles in Cuba: That's entertainment! (by Mitch Sisskind):


Where's the kitten? You forgot the kitten!!!

My favorite lines:
Kennedy: We may get into the invasion business.
Eisenhower: If this thing is such a serious thing here on our flank that we're going to be uneasy and we know what thing's happening, all right, we've got to use something. . . something may make these people shoot 'em off.
Calling George Orwell. . .

Thank you, it's a good one I will linked to my blog.

If you play it again, slowly, you will hear a murmurous haunt in the background, admittedly faint but unmistakably ironic, as if Ike were on the verge of warning JFK that an attempt will be made on his life if he does not act decisively to take out the missiles.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
