Speaking of...

While we're on the subject of Harry Truman, I offer you this from Ralph in Mesa:

Regarding "The day we vaporized a city" by Gary Nelson, a Republic assistant editorial page editor (Viewpoints, Sunday):

As I read the column, I kept glancing at a picture on the wall of my father, 60 years ago a captain in the U.S. Marine Corps, in his dress uniform. I was 7 years old then, and my dad was among those preparing to participate in the planned invasion of Japan. I was worried for him then, even though I was not yet aware that the expected casualties ran around 1 million American servicemen and a half million British Commonwealth servicemen. Thank you, President Truman, for giving the green light to the Enola Gay.
