    Loretta Fuddy is dead after a plane crash off of Molokai island in Hawaii yesterday. Out of the 9 people on the plane, the only one that died was Loretta Fuddy, who was the director of Hawaii’s Health Department. [….] She claimed to have personally seen the original typewritten birth certificate with her own eyes and that it would remain secured but not publicized and that the “copy” would be offered instead. A subpeona was issued to compel her to produce the original and the debable has been up in the air ever since. Yesterday, another forged birth certificate was...

    By a peculiar twist of fate, the Japanese admiral who masterminded the attack had persistently warned his government not to fight the United States. Had his countrymen listened, the history of the 20th century might have turned out much differently. Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto foresaw that the struggle would become a prolonged war of attrition that Japan could not hope to win. For a year or so, he said, Japan might overrun locally weak Allied forces — but after that, its war economy would stagger and its densely built wood-and-paper cities would suffer ruinous air raids. Against such odds, Yamamoto could...

    Isoroku Yamamoto (1884–1943) Romance continues to surround his name, not least in Japan, where he is a cult figure, and not exclusively on the political right. His distaste for a war with the Western allies has always rung a bell with postwar liberals aware that, if the enemy had been as pitiless as the Japanese High Command, the defeat could have been more disastrous, the occupation more humiliating, and the subsequent resurgence of both the culture and the economy much less impressive. The Yamamoto romance benefits from his artistic tastes. Like America's General Patton, Yamamoto wrote accomplished poetry. Again like...

    SEATTLE, Jan. 31, 2006 -- The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] today launched the 737-700ER (Extended Range), following an order conversion from ANA (All Nippon Airways) for two airplanes. The 737-700ER has the longest range capability of any 737 commercial family member, and is able to serve new nonstop, point-to-point routes profitably. ANA exercised rights to substitute 737-700s with 737-700ERs. The two 737-700ERs are part of a larger order announced June 23, 2003, for 45 737-700s. "The value of the Next-Generation 737 family continues to grow with the 737-700ER, and we are delighted to have ANA as the launch customer," said...

He doesn't need to. The 82-year-old Grandville resident lived through the tense and shadowy plots that are second nature to high-tech eavesdropping. "I could never say anything about this until a few years ago," said Galt, who was stationed at Pearl Harbor Naval Base from 1943 until the end of the war. "Nobody knew...
