Out of the Blue

I've commented before that I'm not sure December 7th lives in as much infamy as FDR envisioned when he made his December 8th declaration of war in Japan. That may be for the best, as hostilities between the U.S. and Japan seemed to fade pretty quickly after World War II, and that's not something to complain about. But the date will always jump out for me as the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, so it's hard for me to imagine noting anything else about the date here. I think I'll take the occasion as a chance to watch the fine historical drama based on the attack, Tora! Tora! Tora! (with no apologies at all to Michael Bay).
