A Sober Moment

Posted on August 8, 2020 at 3:19 PM Comments comments (0)
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

History

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! 


That's Entertainment
