An interesting and poignant maybe.

A friend who was a boarder at school on the night of the Cuba Crisis tells me that very many beds had two boys that night because "nobody wanted to die alone"

I think that was a feeling many of us had that night.

We certainly felt that fear in the US.  Khrushchev was pictured as a madman.  A UN shoe pounder, irascible and unstable.  We thought him capable of anything.  

I must say in all honesty, however, that my bed in my dorm room that night was occupied only by me.  More's the pity.
