I was disappointed to see on Sunday, Dec. 7, that the only mention of Dec. 7, 1941, and the attack on Pearl Harbor was one paragraph and one picture in the Eat Play Live section of The Advocate.

Set aside on a page between society activities featuring the umpteenth obligatory charity photo-op of Gayle Benson and Archbishop Greg Aymond and Party Central with young people drinking beer from a Star Wars prop is not really a proper place to mention the second-worst disaster planned by enemies of our country to hit our shores.

I do believe a better place could have been made for the tiny reminder of the day. I hope 50 years from now, when my grandchildren see a reminder of 9/11 on Sept. 11, 2064, that the act of infamy Islamic terrorists unleashed upon New York is not relegated to a place of such non-importance.
