Remember Pearl Harbor

Remember Pearl Harbor, Jonathan says — and screw Google:

Note that, as usual, Google ignores the anniversary as it routinely ignores other US patriotic commemorations. You can’t say they don’t understand the importance of remembrance, since they seem to remember everything else. But for some memories they look the other way. What is that about? Whatever their intent, the conspicuous non-observance outlines that which isn’t acknowledged, much as black holes reveal themselves by distorting the space around them. Google’s odd behavior has been noted so often that Microsoft’s makes a point of showing a photo of the USS Arizona memorial every December 7.
