They asked me what i thought of the atomic bomb I said i had not been able to take any interest in it I like to read detective and mystery stories I never get enough of them but whenever one of them is or was about death rays and atomic bombs i never could read them What is the use if they are really as destructive as all that there is nothing left and if there is nothing there nobody to be interested and nothing to be interested about If they are not as destructive as all that then they are just a little more or less destructive than other things and that means that in spite of all destruction there are always lots left on this earth to be interested or to be willing and the thing that destroys is just one of the things that concerns the people inventing it or the people starting it off but really nobody else can do anything about it so you have to just live along like always so you see the atomic bomb is not at all interesting not any more interesting than any other machine and machines are only interesting in being invented or in what they do so why be interested Sure it will destroy a lot and kill a lot but it's the living that are interesting not the way of killing them because if there were not a lot left living how could there be any interest in destruction They think they are interested about the atomic bomb but they really are not They may be a little scared and if you are not scared the atomic bomb is not interesting Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense They listen so much that they forget to be natural This is a nice story
