Like JFK's assassination everyone of a certain age remembers where they were during the announcement of the Japanese attack on the US Pacific Fleet in Pearl Harbor. Many had to ask, "Where's Pearl Harbor?"
This morning to commemorate their ignorance I posed the same question to younger people on the streets of Manhattan. Few of them had a clue other than two Japanese punks who said it was a group from the 1970s.
"As we get old, we forget. As we get older, we are forgotten."

ps Pearl Harbor and The Explosions released their debut single, "Drivin'". It was backed by "Release It" on Nov. 21, 1979. I have no idea where I was, but I think it was CBGBs.
