I love to listen to books in the car. Currently I am listening to The Thunderbolt Kid. If you pass me and see me laughing hysterically that is why. Bill Bryson's descriptions of just how stupid we were in the 50's appears, sadly, to be accurate. I thought that surely he was making up some of these national absurdities or at least embellishing them for our entertainment. I googled missile mail to test my theory but sure enough our Postmaster General was on hand to receive the first Missile Mail delivery in Mayport in 1959.
