Now even this is “old stuff”

A few years ago, the weird shape of Navy’s Regulus II [a supersonic guided sea-to-surface cruise missile, capable of being armed with a nuclear warhead] rolling along the streets of San Francisco would have stopped pedestrians in their tracks. Yet, last week, this one was scarcely noticed by women and children as it passed by on its way to a Navy League exhibit atop Nob Hill.
