Living in infamy

    It’s the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor today – the day declared to live in infamy.

    The Inquirer reports on how the attack spurred jobs and shipbuilding here in the Philadelphia area, and the Roxborough Review has video of local vets braving the cold to commemorate the anniversary. 

    The National Constitution Center has a day packed with remembrance activities if you’re looking for a way to participate.

    In related news, the Navy has honored a local New Jersey family as the Navy Family of the Year for 2010.
