Carl Sandburg Wondered

Carl Sandburg wondered about the

home life of a hangman.

 

What about the fresh-faced, Air Force

kids who monitor the nuclear

 

weapons in remote, cold, boring

places? Maybe they are too

 

young to think about what they

are doing or, more at it, what

 

they might be called on to do.

The hangman just had to think

 

about one or maybe two necks

a day.
