Observations, thoughts, reminiscences, and occasional rants on
anthropology, linguistics, old-time banjo, and anything else that crosses my path...

August 6, 1945
From the Zinn Education Project: "On Aug. 6, 1945, the U.S. dropped the world's first atom bomb over the city of Hiroshima. Shinichi Tetsutani (then 3 years and 11 months) loved to ride this tricycle. That morning, he was riding in front of his house when, in a sudden flash, he and his tricycle were badly burned. He died that night."
