There have been several documentaries and a few movies which credit the B-17 “Memphis Belle” with being the first 8th U.S. Army Air Force B-17 bomber to complete 25 combat missions during WWII. USAAF records indicate that the Memphis Belle’s crew completed their 25th mission on 17 May 1943, (without any loss of life). Memphis Belle, the aircraft, completed her 25th sortie (bombing run) on 19 May 1943.
1. One of the finest current tv series is “LIVE PD,” which shows what it’s like to be a law enforcement officer. Yet, like many others, I’m taken aback by the ugly, garish tattoos many of the cops display while they are in uniform. When I became a police officer in 1980, visible tattoos like those were NOT allowed; applicants with visible tattoos wouldn’t have been hired. IMO, those stupid tattoos take away from the professionalism of a police officer in uniform.
Recently I wrote about the August 19, 2019 suicide of farmer/grain broker Randy Constant of Chillicothe, Missouri. Constant had been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for his part in the many years-long massive fraud of marketing and selling grains reported to be “organic” when they were apparently “conventional,” non-organic grains. These corn and soybeans were then sold as cattle and chicken feeds; secondary products like meat and eggs were then sold to consumers as pricey “organic meat, eggs and etc.”
