The “Trigger” Was The Bomb

Comments Off
“I grew up in northwest Arvada with the glow of the Rocky Flats perimeter fence lights out of my bedroom window (74th and Simms by Oberon Junior High, graduated from Arvada West in 1986).  Most of my neighbors and friend’s fathers worked at Rocky Flats (or Coors!) and I heard all the same euphemisms: “they just make the triggers.” In college physics I realized that the “trigger” was the bomb; and perhaps its most dangerous part. I swam in the same lakes and canals!  I am fascinated by this subject and my own history as well.”
