    December 7, 1941

    An interesting news article that was never published until yesterday.

    Link

    On Dec. 7, 1941, when Japanese planes attacked Pearl Harbor, I was working as a reporter for the Hono*lulu Star-Bulletin. After a week of war, I wrote a story directed at Hawaii’s women; I thought it would be useful for them to know what I had seen. It might help prepare them for what lay ahead. But my editors thought the graphic content would be too upsetting for readers and decided not to run my article. It appears here for the first time.

    Note: this reporter went to work for the OSS shortly after this.

    It is a bit graphic. Cool story.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    It is interesting that it took this long to be printed.

    I guess it was laying in some archive somewhere and one recent day some guy was thrilled to have found it.
