August 6th, 1945 was a hot and typically muggy day in Washington DC.
President Truman met with his cabinet in the yet to be air conditioned White House, where fans barely could even stir the smoke filled stagnate, muggy air.
The lights where dimmed, and the Secretary of War spoke up
"Mr. President, this is the film from the Pilot and crew of the Enola Gay. This is the explosion of the Atomic bomb over Hiroshima with over 400,000 estimated dead."
Truman winced as the terrible facts were read to him, and this impressed the cabinet ministers, until Truman looked around, and pointing to his empty bowl, "Damn Ice Cream headaches get me every time."
