Well, it's more complicated than that. There were military targets in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Consider the alternative, though: We now know that Japan was going to basically fight to the last man if we invaded, they were projecting losses of up to 20,000,000 people. You could argue that we saved 19,000,000 lives by dropping the bomb. It doesn't make it less reprehensible, but it's a factor that should be considered.
Doesn't it make it less reprehensible? I know that since we cannot know exactly what would have transpired otherwise, it's hard to say if it was a "good decision." But it seems reprehensible is the wrong word.
A elderly man goes into confession and says to the priest,
“Father, I’m 80 years old, married, have four kids and eleven healthy grandchildren, and last night I had an affair with two 18 year old girls. I made love with both of them twice.”
The priest said, “Well, my son, when was the last time you were in confession?”
“Never Father I’m Jewish.”
“So then, why are you telling me?”
“I’m telling everybody!”
Hah, suckers! I listen to Grooveshark!
I have amazon prime
I get free music already.

That's the great thing about living in post-9-11 America, NO ONE is too unimportant to have their phone calls and emails archived. To the NSA, we're ALL special!
I blame the exponential growth in archival storage sizes.
"Are you older than 49 or younger".
There really is no wrong answer here...
It's blatant discrimination against those who are exactly 49.
...the audience to see the whales. I'm sure the whales were comforted seeing the inside of a Klingon Bird-of-Prey~
That was just so Scotty could observe, "There be whales here!"
I'm so glad you managed to overcome the side effects of being stoned to death.
I got better.
