I tell you, I have done nothing this weekend but study, and worry that I'm not studying. That's how I've honored our late soldiers. But - three more chapters and I'm done learning, then I'll have three solid weeks to memorize and run trial tests.
Until then, I have to find my little nuggets of wonder when I can.
The other morning I woke up to a Local NPR station as it was asking a question I've often wondered about: how did they get that great video footage of the ships in Pearl Harbor being bombed? Was it like Kennedy, when someone with a camera was there at the "right" time?
Evidently not, and soon an audio link to that episode of "St Louis on the Air" will show up here. Evidently the footage we see every Dec. 7th was made by a Hollywood director a few weeks later. He planned to weave it into a movie with a morality tale involving Uncle Sam and his conscience, which, sadly, was cut, because can you imagine? I'm picturing a triple feature with Plan 9 and Reefer Madness.
Again, I was half asleep so that whole Uncle Sam thing could have been the REMs talking.
Update: Oh, no, it wasn't.I must find this movie.
