History of the day for December 14

In 1958, controversy erupts in the National Security Council over nuclear "overkill" when a report indicates that 258 nuclear warheads are slated to be dropped on Moscow in case of war. Among the groups with at least one bomb reserved for the "honor" of the Soviet capital were the Army, Navy, Air Force, the Cleveland Police Department and several of the nation's larger Boy Scout troops.
