I was not even alive — heck, I was not even a gleam in my daddy’s eye — when the Japanese Imperial forces bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, the Day that was expected to Live in Infamy. But I know what day it was.
Sunday, not today, was the 67th anniversary of that memorable day. Ceremonies were held around the country yesterday. On the actual day. So why are most media reporting it today? Why did most media not report it yesterday?
I guess that fits with our desire to make everything a Monday holiday. Monday is a slow news day, innit, but still…
I’m sure some news outlets did cover the day on the day. None of the ones I saw or heard did. I’m on a rant here; don’t confuse me with the exceptions.
