I'm still more credible than Wikipedia.

Um, to all of you who are Googling "pearl harbor day trivia" and finding this post I wrote two years ago concerning President Roosevelt's "date which will live in infamy" speech, I feel I should let you know that the following is, strictly speaking, not entirely accurate:
What is not well-known, however, is that this memorable phrase was not the President's initial choice. In an earlier draft of his speech, he referred to the day as "our generation's 9/11", but this did not play well with confused test audiences. The phrase was changed and the rest, as they say, is history.

Thanks for visiting, though.
