December 7th and 8th are two of the worst consecutive dates in American history. We know about Pearl Harbor on Dec 7 and the more than 2,400 people who were killed. Then Dec 8 is The Other Day The Music Died with the assassination of John Lennon and 24 years later the murder of Dimebag Darrell and others.
This just made those days even worse. Somewhere, there is a German crying in his Hefeweizen.
