Quick Fix 6 — Pearl Harbor Day (12/7/05)

1. APhoto Fix: Today, we pause to observe the 64th anniversary of the bombing of sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. And to remember the brave men and women who stopped tyrants on two fronts during World War II. Here, smoke and flames rise from the USS Arizona on Dec. 7, 1941.

2. Cartoon Fix: Ed Stein (1,000th execution), Gary Varvel (Parental consent), and Rob Rogers (Planted Iraq news).

3. Humor Fix: “Considering the dire circumstances that we have in New Orleans, virtually a city that has been destroyed, things are going relatively well.” —FEMA Director Michael Brown. At Political Humor, blogmeister Daniel Kurtzman is asking readers to vote among five entries (all from Republicans) for the dumbest quote of the year here.

4. My Way Fix: This Day in History here, Today’s Birthdays here, Positive Quote here, and Word of the Day here.

5. Top of the News Fix: Sobbing Iraqi woman recalls torture here, Kurds anticipate Saddam’s execution here, Gibson plans holocaust mini-series here, Dean doubts US win in Iraq here, and Bush spokesman stands by Jesus-Santa reference here.

6. Opinion Fix: Dick Morris/The Hill (Hillary can’t have it both ways), Kathryn Jean Lopez/National Review (Che Guevara — not), Michael Goodman/New York Daily News (Dean digs Dems big hole), Ryan Lizza/New York Magazine (New York: Abortion capital of America), and John Stossel/RealClearPolitics (Extravagant waste in law business).
