I don’t mean to be picky about this, but…well, yeah, I guess I do mean to be picky.

I’m used to the media (print, in this case) having poor reporting and editing capabilities but it always makes me think back to the days when reporters, especially from the Daily News, actually went to the scene of an incident, did multiple interviews and, if they didn’t get the details right, their proof-readers and editors would know enough about the city to catch the mistakes and fix them before they got into print.  In this case it’s not a big deal, but nonetheless it annoys and saddens me when I realize the professionalism that used to be and probably never will be again.

“888 Seventh Ave. near W. 57th St.” The address might be “near” 57th Street, but it’s “at” 56th Street, in fact right on the corner of 56th and Seventh.

“the 46-story building next to Carnegie Hall.”  It’s not “next to Carnegie Hall”, it’s across 7th Avenue from Carnegie Hall.

“being extinguished about noon.”  Yes, 11:49 AM is “about” noon, but if our member Signal73 on NYCFIRE.NET could get it exact, I’d think the NYDN with all its money and resources could achieve the same precision.

I don’t mean to turn this into a discussion about the abilities of the Fourth Estate.  There are plenty of other sites for that discussion but I had to say it.

General Discussion / Re: OUR MILITARY.
« Last post by 68jk09 on April 21, 2018, 10:00:03 PM »
I received  this disturbing message.....this must be acted on & rectified.... QUOTE....SHALL WE HIRE A MONUMENT
ENGRAVER TO GO TO
ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY 
AND ADD THE MISSING WORDS?
 
THIS
IS A MESSAGE FROM AN APPALLED OBSERVER:
 
Today
I went to visit the
  new
 World War II
Memorial in Washington,DC.
I got
an unexpected history lesson. Because I'm a baby
boomer,
I was
one of the youngest in the crowd. Most were the age of my
parents,
Veterans of 'the greatest
war,' with their families. It was a beautiful day,
and
people were smiling and happy to be there. Hundreds of us
milled around
the memorial, reading the inspiring words of Eisenhower and
Truman
that
are engraved there.
 
On the
Pacific side of the memorial, a group of us gathered to read the
words
President Roosevelt used to
announce the attack on Pearl Harbor :
 
'Yesterday, December 7,
1941--a date which will live in infamy--
the United States of
America was suddenly and deliberately
attacked.'
 
One
elderly woman read the words aloud:
 
'With
confidence in our armed forces, with the abounding
determination of our people,
we will gain the inevitable triumph.'
 
But as
she read, she was suddenly turned angry. 'Wait a minute,' she
said,
'they
left out the end of the quote. They left out the most important
part.
Roosevelt ended the
message with
 
'So help us God.'
 
 
Her husband said, 'You are probably
right. We're not
supposed to say things like
that now.'
 
'I know I'm right,' she insisted.
'I remember the speech.' The two
looked dismayed,
shook
their heads sadly and walked away.
 
 
Listening to their
conversation, I thought to myself,
'Well,
it has been over 50 years; she's probably
forgotten.'
 
But
she had not forgotten.
  She was right...
 
 
I went
home and pulled out the book my book club is reading
---
'Flags
of Our Fathers' by James Bradley.
It's
all about the battle at IwoJima.
 
I
haven't gotten too far in the book. It's tough to read
because
it's a
graphic description of the WWII battles in the
Pacific.
 
 
But
right there it was on page 58.Roosevelt's speech to the nation
ends in
'So help us God   ..'
 
 
The
people who edited out that part of the speech when they
engraved
it on
the memorial could have fooled me. I was born after the
war!
But
they couldn't fool the people who were there.
Roosevelt's words are
engraved on their hearts.
 
 
 
Now I
ask:
 
 
'WHO
GAVE THEM THE RIGHT TO CHANGE THE WORDS OF OUR
HISTORY???'
 
 
Send
this around to your friends. People need to know before everyone
forgets.
 
 
People today are trying to
change the history of America by leaving God
out
of it, but the truth is, God has been a part of this nation, since
the beginning.
He
still wants to be...and He always will be!
 
 
If you agree, pass this on
and God Bless YOU!

If not, May God Forgive
You!
