We continued north to Lafayette, Colorado, where I saw a t-shirt that read: Got altitude? … In Lafayette, I interviewed Ben Venvigel who was at the Los Alamos nuclear site at the same time Albert Einstein was there, working on the atom bomb. While Venvigel said he saw “the bomb” as an istrument for peace (ending World War II), now he’s not so sure, and in fact a bit leary of the technology. He related that JFK once was quoted as saying: “Let’s put an end to the atom bomb, before the atom bomb puts an end to mankind.” Bumper sticker sighting in Lafayette: Who Would Jesus Bomb? …While in Lafayette, I also talked with George Peirce, 85. He was raised in rural Texas during the Depression. He said he, his father and five siblings all lived in an abandoned cotton mill. And if it wasn’t for FDR’s “New Deal,” he said he wasn’t sure the family would have survived. He said at the height of their own family crisis, the government began providing regular food staples. What’s more, the father eventually got a job with the New Deal’s Public Works Project crushing rocks for new roads in the area.
