Default Dec 7, 41 Radar operator passes


The Army radar operator whose Dec. 7, 1941, early-morning
report of planes approaching Oahu went unheeded died
Saturday in Florida of complications from a stroke. He was 85.


The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.

And that inverted Bowl we call The Sky,
Whereunder crawling coop't we live and die,
Lift not thy hands to It for help--for It
Rolls impotently on as Thou or I.

"The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám "
