Entry for October 7th, 2006

I've been slacking a bit. Totally spaced out putting a blog entry in for yesterday. Soooo, here's today's entry...

On this day in history 1949, Iva Toguri D'Aquino was sentenced to 10 years in prison for treason. Who, you may be asking yourself is this Iva person???? She is more commonly known as Tokyo Rose. A story written about her before her death may be read here http://weeklywire.com/ww/01-20-98/chicago_cover.html at the Weeklywire website. Another interesting article is found at the about.com website http://womenshistory.about.com/library/bio/blbio_toguri_iva.htm .
