Pearl Harbor: Two Mysteries Solved

Accounts of the the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor usually focus on the two waves of Japanese carrier-based warplanes that attacked the U.S. Pacific Fleet in the morning of December 7, 1941. Rarely is any attention given to the five Japanese midget submarines that were ordered penetrate Pearl's harbor defenses and attack the U.S. fleet. Four of the midget subs have been found, but mystery has shrouded what happened to the fifth, at least until just recently.

LBB: A Perfect Storm

Wow, it's been more than a month since my last post, and that was just a plug for a thought-provoking paper that someone else wrote.

I normally try to blog at least once a week, preferably more often, but life beyond the blog (LBB) intervened with a vengeance. A crunch (actually a succession of crunches) at work, a persistent case of the flu that turned out to be a nasty case of allergies (who knew that allergies could cause a fever?), a freelance project that mushroomed beyond control, and a few other things developed into a perfect storm that left me a bit . . . distracted, but I'm back now and feeling somewhat human again.

Expect my next real post in a day or two. Washington is such a target-rich environment that I can't stay silent forever. With Congress in town there's always some silliness or stupidity that needs to be skewered, and I'm more than happy to oblige.
