Today's Moment of History

After the Japanese bombed Hawaii with Pearl Jam, Roosevelt requested, and Congress quickly granted, the passage of an act of war against the Axis powers. Shortly afterwards, Japanese guitars were rounded up and sent off to internment warehouses in California's Owens Valley, among other places. Kawasaki and Yamaha owners remember the injustice to this this day.

(inspired by the Buzz Lightyear post earlier, and by a conversation a few minutes ago, outside the Interzone.)
