Thanks to The Record for "Remembering Pearl Harbor" on half of its front page, with a moving article and picture of a decorated Stockton veteran who was at Pearl Harbor and fought through the attack.

The Lodi News-Sentinel chose to devote about one-third of its front page to an ordinary close-up picture of the president. Nothing newsworthy, and the news is saturated with this type of picture daily.

A small article about a couple of Los Angeles veterans was found on the second to the last page in the sports section, after the ads and comics.

When you went to your new format I recall reading something to the effect that your department heads meet and decide what to print on the front page.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt called Dec. 7 "a date which will live on in infamy." How could you not remember the importance of this day?
