The day we almost lost North Carolina: Two nuclear bombs—both owned by the U.S.—almost exploded in Goldsboro, North Carolina in 1961. Fortunately for the state of North Carolina, the bombs, which were said to be 260 times more powerful than the one that took out Hiroshima in 1945, didn’t explode. However … one of those bombs went through the motions it should have if it were to blow up. That’s just one of the findings that “Fast Food Nation” author Eric Schlosser found when researching his new book, “Command and Control.”
