When the "Stars" Align...It's Fun !

Without even being "pressed", there are two things we will admit we are absolutely obsessed about:

(1) People who spout off about history when they do not know what they are talking about.

(2) The "Old" dinosaur media slickers who include a pinko, left wing bleeding heart poison pill in every "news" presentation and it morphs into gaffe.

When there occurs a nexus between these breathtaking events, there are all kinds of explosions. Eyes become virtual eggs (though ours are disabled); a huge burst of guffaws emerges from the belly, and the heart bursts with "Gotcha" Gratitude to the Deity of Justice.

On Tuesday, perusing one of our favorite Internet Blog sites, Publius Forum, (http://tinyurl.com/y3jl5nn) we came across a story about the great old newspaper, The Boston Herald, pulling a boner that amounted to actually, soiling its own nest.

They were re-enacting the Battle of Lexington, where the militia, armed with guns largely held together with baling wire, defeated British "Red Coat" regulars, with "the shot heard 'round the world".

Except it wasn't.

That shot, was fired in the Battle of Concord, where Ralph Waldo Emerson later lived and wrote those words for a memorial re-enactment of THAT battle.

Only way it could have been more delicious is if it had been the NYSlimes-owned paper, the Globe, that fouled the neighborhood.

Even more terrible was the Uh-Oh by Cokie Roberts, well known left liberal interviwer, and daughter of two extremely powerful and savvy Democrat Congresscritters, Hale Bogga andhis widow, Lindy Boggs . Cokie is also the wife of a very bright news correpondent, Steve Roberts who was with her....

When she likened the internment of Japanese in California prison camps following the Pearl Harbor attack December 7, 1941 to the worst of immigrant treatment horrors.

But the TRUTH IS, y' see, all those internees were United States citizens...Nisei, as they called themselves. Many of them fought for the USA in Europe. We know this because we were 16 then and glued to the Philco.

One wishes to have been there at Concord, too. Or Breed's Hill. Or, yes !even better, Yorktown !

Ignorance is so sad in all our elitist "betterrs". It's a shame to giggle.
