Man Survives Both A-Bombs

Tyler Cowen tips us off to this:

Mr. Yamaguchi was in Hiroshima on a business trip on Aug. 6, 1945, when an American B-29 dropped an atomic bomb on the city. He returned to Nagasaki, his hometown, before the second attack, officials said.

I can’t decide how I want to crack a joke about this. I’m thinking I could say something like, “Whoa, I bet he doesn’t love America,” or maybe, “Huh, looks like the government can’t even make a lethal A-bomb,” or perhaps some sort of Watchmen reference, like calling this guy Dr. Nagasaki.
