8:50 PM--CST--FOX NEWS!! 75 years ago-Japanese fighter jets bombed Pearl Harbor---I can't make this crap up. I had to replay it a couple times to make sure I heard it right
Yeah I'm pretty sure that is the problem, since it would be a few months before the first jet would fly.I don't get it. Is the problem because they said "jets?"
Yes, no country had operational jets in 1941. Maybe a few experimental prototypes, but nothing deployed for battle. At least they knew the attackers were Japanese.I don't get it. Is the problem because they said "jets?"
Thumbs up to that!Yes, Martha MacCallum said jets instead of planes. She either misread the teleprompter or someone messed up on writing the text. It's not the biggest mistake in the world. I found the news items to be very interesting. It's amazing there are still veterans around who were serving at Pearl Harbor at the time. They're all in their 90's now, and they're still able to get around. I liked the line from the admiral's speech that took a dig at Colin Kaepernick -- "You can bet that the men and women we honor today, and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago, never took a knee and never failed to stand whenever they heard our national anthem being played."
I was at the book fair and there was a "science" book that referred to the payload fairing on the falcon 9 heavy as a "nose cone"OK...
Phew. I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking that... I read this thread and was wondering what I was missing....
