Fallout shelter nostalgia

Fallout Shelter Nostalgia
A satirical op-ed piece I did for The Capital Times in the late Seventies -- "Will there be parking at Armageddon?" "Will there be sexism at the holocaust?" The shelters signs are no longer posted publicly and have migrated to the collectible market, much as I predicted, but the nukes are still there. There's still quite a bit of shelter activity as well, but it seems to have gone underground. So to speak.

There are a lot of people out there who have built shelters in their own homes. It is not something people talk about because if there is an emergency, the owners of these shelters don't want everyone else to come to their home to be safe from the emergency. I have seen small box shelters buried under the garage floor of their home. I have seen large shipping containers reinforced underground. It is interesting to see what these people will do in fear of a global disaster.
