"A date which will live in infamy"


Yes, I haven't watched the news today. And, we all know that I gave up on newspapers long ago. But... really? Why is it that that Pearl Harbor Day isn't even on my calendar?

"The two-hour aerial raid began just before 8 a.m. and destroyed or heavily damaged 21 ships and 175 aircraft, killed 2,390 people and wounded 1,178 others. It plunged the United States into World War II and set in motion the events that led to atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan." (http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20061207/NEWS03/612070379/-1/BUSINESS07)

This is not important enough in our history to put on the calendar?

Totally calling the calendar company tomorrow. Sheesh.
