It's not funny...but it is. In Bomboozled (Pointed Leaf), author Susan Roy pairs illustrations with incisive commentary to reveal just how deluded we used to be about prepping for the all-too-thinkable nuclear attack. Advertisements featured women in dresses and heels happily waiting out Armageddon with their families in fallout shelters. Or, as the spin doctors of the time put it: "in the family room of tomorrow."
