Drive Your Car to Work Week set for June

Not sure why it amuses me so to say that every year.

Maybe it's the far-fetched hope that some cycling-hating Crabby Appleton will see it and think, if only for a split second, “At last — reality!”

Of course, I can see being a non-cyclist and growing weary of references to Bike to Work Week. Especially when it is, as organizers refuse to admit, a Communist plot to mess up our precious bodily fluids and sap our purity of essence.

Speaking of “Dr. Strangelove,” some newsroom colleagues were talking last week about a report somewhere that at least some of the B-52 scenes had been filmed at Fairchild.

Anyone know anything about that?

Seems like I have looked into that a time or two but never found satisfying evidence of a local connection. Fact is, I sort of doubt that there really is an FAFB link to that movie. Wouldn't that be a famous bit of local trivia if it were true?
