#2 Well, back then we blamed the Japanese. After 9/11 too many (Leftest) still blame America. Should have had that reckoning when the Wall came down.

#3 RIP, indeed. Pure selfishness follows. A few years ago (around the time I lost a parent, which would place the date near the 75th anniversary, and explain why I was so dopey), I walked into the local drugstore to see, of all things, a guy wearing a white Arizona survivor jacket, looking a little "lost in thought," positioned as if he were waiting while someone shopped. Squeamish about intruding, I grabbed my stuff and hurried back up, intending to accost him on the way out. Only... he's gone. Pretty quick for a old guy. And I'm still kicking myself.

Keep an eye on those old folks, kids -- they'll sneak off on you "without so much as a 'by your leave,'" as my dad would say. Why'm I typing this? Because I think this was probably the guy I saw. Looked a little taller, but you know how that works.
