Dec 7th, 1941. Recently I was going through old mementos and found that I still have the first researched report that I ever wrote as a student. It was about the attack on Pearl Harbor. [I can still smell the mimeograph chemicals... or was it thermal copy paper that was used for photos? I can't remember anymore.] What is terrifying is that I wrote that report about 40 years ago. At the time, Pearl Harbor had occurred about 30 years earlier, but I thought it was ancient history!
