As extracted more or less in entirety from the outstanding Internet web site isegoria.net on the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Japanese attack on the American fleet at Pearl Harbor, 7 December 1941.
"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 Bing.com makes a point of showing a photo of the USS Arizona memorial every December 7."
GOOGLE TODAY THEIR PAGE SHOWING THE AMERICAN FLAG AND NOTHING MORE THAN THAT! IN MEMORY OF PEARL HARBOR ONE MIGHT IMAGINE!
GOOGLE THEIR AUDIENCE WORLD-WIDE. NOT WANT TO OFFEND ANYONE, EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OFFENSE NOT GIVEN AND NONE SHOULD BE TAKEN?
