#3 The most successful American film at the time of this publication was the action movie Fast and Furious 9, which grossed $716 million.

Gawd hollywood sucks.

Was going to ask if the movie is any good, then remembered Air Strike, which even Bruce Willis couldn't carry me more than 15 minutes into the prop flick.

#4 Have you ever heard of TF Faith, the Arm's 31st RGT that fought on the east side of the Chosin Reservoir? I first read about them in Roy E. Appleman's East of Chosin(1987) covering the brief life and death as they slowed down a CCF juggernaut. Only recently has their sacrifice been more than a footnote or a scurrilous comment implying that "they broke and ran"...
