It’s that day of the year again.

[Intermezzo] Wherein I Offer You a Few Disjointed but Heartfelt Memories of My Dear Friend Frank on Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day
The other day I was listening to some news broadcasts during/just after the Pearl Harbor attacks from Dec. 7/1941, and it was unsettling to hear how confused and surprised the reporters were. They were doing an excellent job of maintaining professionalism, but even so, you could detect a sense of outrage – and rightfully so.
What a fabulous bit of saved history! Back in my early gallery days, I framed an original newspaper from Hawaii reporting on the attacks right after they happened. Very fascinating, but not as fascinating as this.
