December 7 There were some very touching Pearl Harbor tributes Saturday. I always remember the day because it was also my great grandmother's birthday. While she and I never got along, this year would have marked her 101st. She almost made it, but in all honesty, I didn't really want her to. While it's sad to lose family members and the wealth of information she was (that woman seemed to have lived through everything), it was her time. Anyway, today I read this great piece by Armed Liberal.
The film itself was good, if somehow unexciting…maybe because it was so consciously realistic and kind of documentary-like. It should make Jerry Bruckheimer and the rest of the folks behind Pearl Harbor a little bit ashamed, since so much of it was a lift (rent Tora Tora Tora and see for yourself).
But the event was a reminder to me that the roots of greatness in our nation aren't in the salons of the powerful, but in the shabby displays of patriotism out here in the hinterlands.
