Tomorrow is the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As commemorations occur, they provide a news peg for two things that I have been late in posting. The first is my finished written story about the Pearl Harbor Visitor's Center, which has been published, not only on the IU School of Journalism class website, but also this Sunday in The Indianapolis Star. The second is a followup post of Hawaii photos that is seven months overdue. The published story provides evidence that the trip was not a vacation; the photos, maybe not.
