a belated memorial!


What with all the noise, and the associated bull**** whistling through the undergrowth, I completely forgot a tragic anniversary of nearly a week ago; one which places the overheated winds surrounding the death and memorials to Mandela in proper perspective.

Readers, I give you the Arizona, the ship whose fate, and the fate of the men who saluted the flag she bore so proudly, when this photo was taken, could never have been imagined.
