Roosevelt declared it a =date which will live in infamy" -- December 7, 1941, when over 300 Japanese planes attacked Pearl Harbor, compelling the US to enter WWII by declaring war on Japan the next day. Next week marks the 754 anniversary of this terrible day, and a small non-profit museum in Natick, MA, is commemorating the anniversary with an exhibit entitled =Why We Still Remember." The Museum of World War II's new display chronicles the mood in the U.S. and Japan leading up to and after the December 7, 1941, attack by Japan. The exhibition features artifacts evoking the imperialistic ambitions of Japan, such as news accounts and propaganda celebrating recent victories over the Chinese, and America's nnlversary preoccupation with the war in Europe while being complacent regarding any threat in the Pacific arena (the latter suggested by photos of sandy beaches and hula girls taken by U.S. Servicemen in Hawaii). The comprehensive exhibit goes on to cover the attack itself, which killed over 2400 U.S. personnel, and destroyed or damaged 19 U.S. ships, including 8 battleships. (Many of the U.S. casualties were stationed on the USS Arizona, which was sunk in the harbor.) Artifacts from the damaged US ships and shot down Japanese warplanes are on display. Headlines in Japanese newspapers are contrasted with U.S. publications, and the heightened fear of Japanese living in America resulting in the internment camps is reflected in some of the displays. The 8al Glarratani The Twinkie is Back -i Newly revived Hostess has decided to let Twinkies " be Twinkies, the famous pale yellow calorie tubes with a cream-like filling. The marketing is aimed at ] their biggest customer base, which they call "Bubbas ] in trucks." I also assume their old base; kids looking I for a sugar buzz, will also bring them corporate suc- cess, too. A snack that has no expiration date could become once again the biggest moneymaker it once was back in my young Twinkie days. No English Test for NYC Cabbies In New York City, they are actually debating whether or not to require city cabbies to speak and I i ii~i~!iiiii~iii!i iiiiiiiii:!iiiiii~!i < understand English. Why is this even a debate? Why make it easier for foreign-born immigrants to drive cabs if they can't understand their customers. This is America. Learn English if you want to work with the public. Period. It is a problem here in Boston, too. It can cause all sorts of trouble when drivers and riders when don't understand each other. An English test doesn't seem ominous to me. Trump Needs Pat Buchanan Pat Buchanan has been one of my favorite con- servafive commentators for most of my adult life. He started off in the late '60s as a great columnist for the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. He ended up working as President Richard Nixon's right-hand man when it came to policy. A great conservative, he took on George H.W. Bush in 1992 at the Houston GOP Convention where he put America First into play. He talked about the oncoming Cultural War still in its infancy at that time. Just before the 1996 GOP primary in New Hamp- (Continued on Page 11) ililill iii!iiii i ii i:i!! !ii !!!!!!ii!iii!i!i!!iiiii!ii!i!!iiiii ! ii!i, i i i!il ! !iill i i !i :/! !!i! !iili !i !iiii!ii!!iiiiiii iiii i ,, : story of a Japanese-American serviceman wounded in France and awarded the Purple Heart while his parents were sent to an internment camp back home is told through photos, letters, and other personal effects.
