This is the 75th Anniversary of the dropping of two atomic bombs on Japan. On Aug 6, 1945, a bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. On Aug 8, 1945, another was dropped on Nagasaki. An estimated 200,000 people died. During the three-month battle of Okinawa (one battle!) 250,000 Japanese and 50,000 Americans died.
"In the terrible arithmetic of World War II, the idea that such a nightmare might end in a day or two was seen as saving millions of lives. It was in that bleak context that Harry Truman dropped the two bombs--opting for a terrible choice among even worse alternatives."
--Victor Hanson; a quote from an editorial in the Gazette

I watched a PBS show on the Roman Coliseum. In addition to the gladiators, crucifictions, animal kill/be killed adventures, and misc executions, the Romans killed convicts by launching them through the air with a catapult to simulate Icarus flying too close to the sun.
Pack a lunch, kids, we're gonna have some fun today!
