Sprinter* is over and Spring has officially arrived

Today officially marked the first day of spring for me because I spotted the season's first Fall River youth sporting a Fall River tuxedo, the wifebeater and baggy jeans. This reminded me that the ground is now soft enough to remove a certain monument squatting on the green dedicated to the Fall River war hero who died in a Japanese prison camp during WWII, Corporal David Miller.

An organization in Fall River is planning a memorial service and wreath laying for David Miller on his green next month. Pat Casey needs to get her ass in gear and follow through with the promise she made to correct the egregious error she and Bob Correia committed when they stole David Miller Green and renamed it for a local restaurant owner.

PAT CASEY and BOB CORREIA: WE WILL NOT FORGET!


*Sprinter is the name given to the season Pat Casey thinks comes between Winter and Spring (copyright WJ Bloggah/Westcoast transplant 2009)

about the same time bigmike the hater posted negativity on the herald news

Wow...

You sound like the Japanese during this time... Which is why they treated the men so poorly.

To be factual. They faught long and hard to keep their position. It was the commanders who surrendered. Their direct commander was given assurances that the men would not be treated poorly. They in fact were treated the worst any American has ever been treated as a POW.

Anon 02:19, you are sick. Very sick. I wish you had a better education that you could see what this monument stands for.

I guess monuments should only be erceted for Hall Of Famers? I'm sorry, but if the negativity is from Mike, that's just downright MEAN!

You are a disgusting excuse for a human being. You do not deserve to live in a country whose freedom was, and continues to be secured by men and women whose bravery you will never comprehend.
