A day that will live in infamy....

Just a thought for those of us preoccupied by our various issues, primaries, elections, how breaking up is hard to do... they're real, they're important, sure - but they don't really amount to all that much, at least not in comparison to what happened seventy years ago today.

When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, it wasn't the sort of thing which the press today calls a crisis, every other day. This was a real clash of cultures. This was a day that truly will live in infamy, a day that saw two thousand four hundred and two people slaughtered, and which led us into four years of war and the loss of millions of lives worldwide.

Sometimes you need a bit of perspective... today is a fine day to get it.

Get a grip people.

Remember... it truly can get worse.
