Reader's Diary #1996- Jerome Stueart: For a Look at New Worlds

Jerome Stueart's short "For a Look at New Worlds" was an instantly engaging piece of sci-fi with a well-developed and entirely plausible world involving Mars colonization and holograms. Plus it has a rich emotional story preventing it from being all bells and whistles. I did wonder how others might feel about a character's comparison to her personal situation to the bombing of Hiroshima: is this akin to ill-advised comparison of unlikeable people to Hitler? Or is it fair game/ appropriate in this story?
