The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

State Holiday in California

I missed it, but LAST Sunday was Fred Korematsu Day in California.

Here is a link to why it was Fred Korematsu Day and why we should all pay attention to him, and to Justice Robert Jackson's dissent when Mr Korematsu's case made it to the Supreme Court of the United States.

For those wondering, I find the suppression of evidence by the prosecution to be inexcusable.  The US Solicitor General at the time, Mr Charles H Fahy should have been prosecuted for this, although God's statute of limitations probably intervened before he could be brought to trial.

Sometimes they do something right in California.

I must disagree. Michelle Malkin's excellent book : In Defense of Internment: The Case for Racial Profiing in World War II and the War on Terror shows clearly that the Japanese had Fifth Column Activity on Hawaii and California. This activity was a clear and present danger to secuity of the nation.

Dear Publius

My big point here, and maybe I buried it, is that the Solicitor General of the United States buried evidence that would have been of value to the defense.

That is an act that requires us all to say "Wrong".


The other thing that concerns me is that we interned Germans, Italians and Japanese here in the ZI, but not on Hawaii.  Would one not think the greatest threat was in the Territory of Hawaii?  Maybe Ms Malkin says different in her book, which I have not read.

ZI=Zone of the Interior, a quaint way of referring to the lower 48.
