Don't Know Much About History

Nothing is over until we decide it is!One of my favorite movie quotes of all time is this John Belushi line from Animal House:
Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
That's the first thing I thought of this morning when WROW's Paul Vandenburgh promised to talk about something he read in the TU. From the story:
An aging Carl Beninati fulfilled an old promise to himself by moving the remains of his long lost sibling, Marine Corps paratrooper Anthony Beninati, to the national cemetery from St. Paul's Cemetery in Mechanicville.
Vandenburgh explained that Beninati was killed during the war in 1948. 1948? Was he killed during the Arab-Israeli War? This is just another example of why Vandenburgh has the "number one morning news-talk show."
