SECURITY BARD - New York Post:

Monologist Mike Daisey has done lots of research about our country's security apparatus, and his opinions are not just strong, but potentially combative.

"The act of bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki is obviously a terrorist act," says Daisey, "in the sense that you're using a weapon of mass destruction to inflict a huge amount of terror in order to end a war. Whether it's justifiable or not is a separate matter that we all need to grapple with."

That topic is the basis for Daisey's new show, "If You See Something Say Something," which runs at Joe's Pub until Nov. 30. It deals with the formation of the Department of Homeland Security, the creation of the atomic bomb and Daisey's own pilgrimage to the Los Alamos site where the first atomic tests took place.
