[ - ] I offered to take a co-workers shift b/c she had something to do that day. This is over 4 weeks ahead. I found out 2 days later that I actually can't cover for her--long standing appointment. I let her know and now she's acting annoyed at me. I gave her 4 weeks to find another coworker to cover for her if she has to be out. Frankly she could also call in sick too, but she says it'll hurt her. She never takes a personal day or sick day. But that's ridiculous IMHO. I offered then quickly realized within 2 days I couldn't do it and let her know. Now in the future I'll just say no. 34 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Maybe she booked an expensive day at a spa, maybe a hard dot get doctor's appointment, maybe some family thing.

My parents, who grew up and were teenagers in an occupied country in Europe during WWII, and most people I know who lived then, have a similar impression. The Japanese were the aggressors, every single Japanese soldier was willing to sacrifice his life rather than surrender, no matter the futility. Something truly fundamental was needed. Not throwing the bomb would have meant that many more American soldiers (and other allied soldiers) would have died men and women kept as POW, both soldiers and sex slaves would have suffered longer. Japan was not about to surrender. No matter how tragic, they did what needed doing. I am sorry for the suffering of those civilians, but I won't call them innocent, and I think the U.S. made the right decision. [ Reply | More ]

History Mom - yes, I'm here, and this is a hugely contested question. The US Army estimated that, when it met the Japanese population on the beaches, and that includes civilians armed with spears, the USA would take a million casualties. This isn't mere hyperbole: Okinawa had been part of Japan for centuries, and the Marines had to remove Japanese soldiers from caves with flame throwers. As to the issue of dropping the bomb on a military base, Hiroshima did have some military targets, but, more importantly, we only had 3 of the bombs and we weren't even positive that they would work. Strictly based upon what we knew at the time, dropping the bomb probably saved American lives. Of course, other historians feel very strongly the other way. [ Reply | More ]

Hiroshima was selected because it was an industrial and military center. Military people were based there and the city was home to both supplies and production facilities. They dropped leaflets several days before the bombing telling civilians what was going to happen and instructing them to leave. Nagasaki happened days later because the whole point of using these weapons was to pummel the Japanese into surrender to avoid what everyone estimated would be a million US dead if a land invasion was necessary. So once you decide to drop the first one, you have to keep dropping more until the Japanese realize that they can't fight back. The second bomb did that and led to the surrender. [ Reply | More ]

There was NO RACIAL INTENT in the senior prank. At some camps, there is an activity where you grease watermelons, put them in the pool/lake, and the counselors have to get them out, which is really hard to do because of the grease. At Fieldston, the kids put the greased watermelons all over campus. The Dean of this year's senior class happens to be black and, in addition to all the other places the kids put the watermelons, they put a bunch in their Dean's office. [ Reply | More ]
