The code talkers were forbidden to discuss the program until well after the war.

It doesn't surprise me that many of them kept it to themselves until well after the program became declassified.

Many vets don't like to discuss their service even with those closest to them.

Yes it is a great source of pride amongst Navajos and should be.

If this had happened earlier, I'm talking about the wind talkers becoming known, I can see Robert Townsend coming up with one of those satires he used to make called Ebonics Talkers

This morning I watched a 1945 movie called The Southerner. I did not like the ending. I guess the theme was that no matter how hard you work, there is no happy ending in sight.

Last night we watched an old Paul Newman film, think it was done in 1982, called The Verdict. It was very good but albeit a bit slow I think because of the attention to building a good foundation. When it was all said and done, it was fascinating and certainly got our attention.

If you liked the first you should like the second. If you hated the first you should hate the second.

They are both late night, can't sleep repeat watches.

The 16th president is now at our house. Waiting for Thursday night when I can devote the full 2 hours and 15 minutes to it. Until then I have baseball games at night. Yeah, I got weird priorities!

It is fitting that he stay at your house for awhile. After all, so many people have slept in his bedroom at the White House.

Except he's on top the entertainment center. Maybe I'll fluff up the pillows and have him wait in the guest bedroom.
