Photo of the day

Sorry, I’ve been a slacker blogger.  I’m teaching a “Maymester” class which means squeezing a full semester into 3 weeks.  Throw in a little “political expert” consulting project on the side and blogging has fallen by the wayside.  Not to mention trying to teach Evan how to ride a bike.

Anyway, did you know that the Japanese tried to attack America with approximately 9000 balloon bombs during 1944?  They did.  Learned about it today on a great Radiolab.  And since that’s a listen, here’s a nice summary from NPR, where I found the photo.

The Japanese balloon bomb, in all its terrible splendor.
