Companion piece to iPod

Interesting AT piece, inspired by the Jeong Show. Here’s the iPod link once again, and we note that this was written in the Stone Age, 2 years before the iPhone appeared. Edison, Beethoven, Newton, Ford: bad, bad, bad!!!

    One thing I did not see touched on in the AT piece was women’s rights. Were it not for white men ceding their authority, women would have virtually no rights. Indeed, in most of the world they still don’t have many rights. Jeong should leave the USA for Japan, China, Zimbabwe, Iran or even Mexico, countries with few to no white men in power and see how thing work out for her.

    This is the most galling thing about her tirades. Almost anywhere else in the world she wouldn’t have squat compared to what she has here, and she wants the very people that made it happen eliminated.

    Off topic, because it is Aug 6.

    When the United States dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Tsutomu Yamaguchi, a 29-year-old naval engineer, was preparing to leave the city. He had been on a three-month-long business trip for his employer, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Aug. 6, 1945, was supposed to be his last day in Hiroshima. He was walking to Mitsubishi’s shipyard one last time when he looked up and saw an American B-29 bomber soar over the sky and drop a small object. Yamaguchi remembers the sky erupting in a blaze of light. He barely had time to jump in a ditch before an “ear-splitting boom” rang out. History writes, “the shock wave that accompanied it sucked Yamaguchi from the ground, spun him in the air like a tornado and sent him hurtling into a nearby potato patch.” When he woke up, he was unsure what had happened. His face and forearms were badly burned and both eardrums were ruptured. He had been less than two miles from ground zero.

    Yamaguchi did make it home to his wife and son in his hometown of Nagasaki, but in order to get to the train station, he was forced to swim through a layer of dead floating bodies because the bridges had been destroyed. On Aug. 9, Yamaguchi reported for work at the Mitsubishi’s Nagasaki office. But around 11 a.m., when Yamaguchi was describing the atomic bomb to his boss, the blinding light came back. The atom bomb that hit Nagasaki was even more powerful than the one dropped on Hiroshima, but Yamaguchi emerged relatively unhurt. For the second time, he survived a nuclear explosion that landed within two miles of him. His wife and son survived as well; they hid in a tunnel because they were out looking for burn ointment for his wounds from Hiroshima.
