On the flight back last week I sat next to a guy from an industrial
security company, For $300,000 they bought a slightly used Titan
missile site near Moses Lake, complete with 3 underground silos. They
are converting the silos to computer tape archives. Companies like
airlines will pay this company to transport their tapes to the missile
site via armored car, where they will be stored in a climate-controlled
facility which, incidentally, can survive a direct nuclear strike.
This wins my award for "most creative use of a missile silo by a guy
sitting next to me on a flight of 5 hours or less."
