AIPAC, Uzbekistan and other ordinary people

Stayed up late watching WarGames. WOPR always manages to figure out the Nuclear Codes, and somehow that Matthew Broderick convinces it to transcend its boundaries and comprehend the futility of nuclear war.

Our Macalester news story in the Pioneer Press. Not 100% accurate. Can't say more.
