IT BREAKS MY HEART TO SEE ALLIED SHIPS USED AS TARGET PRACTICE; IT IS LIKE SHOOTING THE ELDERLY WHO CAN NO LONGER GET AROUND WELL. ONE OF THE WORST TRAGEDIES OF THIS NATURE WAS THE U.S. ATOMIC EXPLOSION IN THE BIKINI ISLANDS AND ATOLL. IT WAS NOT JUST ONE, IT WAS SEVERAL BOMBS (H-TYPE, I BELIEVE). I DO NOT KNOW WHOSE BRILLIANT IDEA IT WAS TO PULL OF A FETE OF THAT NATURE, BUT IF ONE COULD COURTS-MARTIAL RETROACTIVELY, THERE WOULD BE SOME ADMIRALS MINUS SCRAMBLED EGGS AND SEVERAL MEMBERS OF THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT DUE FOR RELEASE FROM LEAVENWORTH NEXT YEAR. IT IS UNBELIEVABLE THAT SUCH AN EVENT WAS EVER CONSIDERED. THE MORE I THINK ABOUT THIS, THE MORE PI---ED OFF I BECOME,SO IT IS BEST TO DISMISS IT----BUT I BELIEVE I WILL WRITE A PIECE ON THE STUPIDITY OF SUCH AN ACT AND RESEARCH NAMES AND DATES. THANKS FOR THE PHOTO THAT HAS RAISED MY BLOOD PRESSURE THIS SUNDAY MORNING. ROB
- HUFFSTUTTER'S PHOTO ESSAYS
- My dad's dad, my grandfather, was nine years old when President Lincoln died from an assassin's bullet. Most people think I am speaking of my GREAT GRANDFATHER. NO, I am referring to my dad's father, my paternal Grandfather, Robert Levi Huffstutter, born in 1856. What does this information have to do with my profile? It might help the reader understand that I have a sense of being much older than I am in that only one generation seperates me from President Lincoln. This causes me to respond differently to society and many current events. In many respects, this is to my benefit, in other respects it dates my mindset. Perhaps this is the reason I value the moral standards and idealogies of older Americans, the men who were the soldiers and sailors I saw when I was a small boy,the men and women who fought a war for freedom without any doubts posted by a media with a questionable lack of national unity and purpose.
