--Air Force personnel at a ICBM base in Wyoming amused themselves by taking LSD whilst not on duty with the apocalyptic weaponry. Lt. Col. Owsley Stanley is reported to be looking into the incident. (OK, that last sentence is an obscure Grateful Dead joke.) Which raises some questions: What drugs go best with what weapons? Americans tend to prefer a cocktail of alcohol and firearms, but there are many other possibilities. We know the Air Force pairs “go pills” (amphetamines) with piloting warplanes. Apparently LSD goes well with thermonuclear weaponry. Makes a kind of sense.
