VJ Day

I learned something today.

Rhode Island is the last state that still celebrates VJ Day. Very interesting. I had no idea that any state still celebrated it. I read the script for the PKG that'll be airing at 6 and what the vets say makes a lot of sense.

There's a guy that works here that just got out of the Navy this past winter and he was talking about it too. He compared it to the 4th of July. He said "Should we stop celebrating that so we don't offend the British?" It sounds really funny, but it's the exact same situation.

It definately falls under the "strange things you might see in Rhode Island" category! But I think that maybe it should be seen in more states instead of just here.
