THE HOMOSEXUAL WHO WRECKED AN EMPIRE (Mar, 1960)
I just thought this was so ridiculous I had to post it.
THE HOMOSEXUAL WHO WRECKED AN EMPIRE
His queer pleasures drove him to treason—and started a world war!
By STEFAN v. S. RUBELCU
THE APARTMENT was a decorator’s dream, luxuriously tricked out with all kinds of feminine frills and heavy with the sickening sweet odors of perfume and incense. Almost daintily, the figure in the lush room touched a manicured finger to a baroque wooden floral decoration on the pearl-inlaid wall panelling. Noiselessly, a door slid open, disclosing a capacious closet crammed with obviously expensive female apparel.
He advanced the bombing of Hiroshima by at least a year! (Nov, 1946)
If the bombing had been pushed back a year, do you think the war would have lasted? If not, then you could make the case that Japan got nuked because this guy was trying to build a uranium light bulb.

Modern fortifications along the Maginot and Siegfried lines have made France and Germany “invasion proof.” The result may be a war no nation can win!
by Maxwell Hamilton
WHAT happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object?
This age-old problem in physics, a familiar question to every school boy, seems destined to find an answer in Europe’s latest armed conflict. For the present “war to end wars” is a contest between two of the world’s! greatest immovable objects—the Siegfried and the Maginot lines!
Washington’s Brassy Influence Peddlers (Mar, 1960)
Sadly, this seems pretty tame by comparison with what is considered normal today.
Washington’s Brassy Influence Peddlers
Retired generals and admirals cozy up to their old buddies to swing billions of dollars in defense contracts!
By FRANK DEGNAN
LAST JULY, three of the largest defense contractors in the nation readied plans to entertain Air Force Lt. General Bernard S. Schriever, head of the Air Research and Development Command. Party invitations described the affair as cocktails and dinner with an off-the-record chat by General Schriever about his plans and problems.
