President Franklin Delano Roosevelt called Pearl Harbor a day that will go down in infamy. Sadly and ironically, also down in infamy is FDR’s February 19, 1942, executive order 9066 from two months later sending Japanese Americans to concentration camps. How brutally and miserably hasty and wrong.

History has a way too often of repeating its harsher mistakes. Don’t give Donald Trump nor any other bad choice in a political candidate, a chance to prove it.
