A Date Which Will Live in Infamy

Nothing more to be said, folks.
Except the human race hasn't gotten a whole lot better.

  1. I agree with you agreeing.
    That it is probably worse is terrifying.
    Me? I've had a good run.
    I fear for mine and everyone else's children.

  2. I rather disagree. Imperial Japan, and Nazi Germany were far worse and far bigger threats than some violent religious weirdos on the other side of the world claiming lands of desert from 3rd wold countries.

  3. I think I read that there are fewer than a hundred Pearl Harbor survivors left. Hard to believe.

    2. Only nine survivors of the Arizona. I'm sure some other survivors are still alive.

  4. I'm not ready to give up on us or our future yet. Things might be worse in some ways, but are better in others.

    1. With everything in me, I hope you're right. But, while the human race may be better as a whole, the instruments of mayhem are exponentially worse. And it only takes one person. Oh, I'm getting depressed now.

  5. The human race has issues, to be sure. But it is the only game in town. Maybe we need to re-examine the rules.

    1. Sadly, there will always be those who don't want to play by the rules. To quote a dopey Batman movie: there will always be those who "just want to watch the world burn."

  6. It's a scary world, but then It's always been scary...

    It's a double dose for me, it is also the anniversary of my first marriage.

    1. Unfortunately, suitcase nukes trump bronze spears. :-(

  7. I didn't see much about it yesterday. When I first looked at the computer, I thought .... Pearl Harbor Day. I suppose it's now too for back and only oldies like me do remember. I was 12 and every minute of that day is still burning in my memory.

    1. It can happen again. Only this time, dozens of ships won't have to sail thousands of miles to kill thousands.

    1. Makes me look with nostalgic fondness at the innocence of my childhood.
