Watched most of “Saving Private Ryan” on ABC tonight – never seen the movie, but had heard about its harrowing first 20 minutes – very graphic depiction of D-Day invasion. If there’s anything that makes you wish for an end to war, that was it. Goodness. And, I’ll give ABC credit for showing the movie largely unedited – including the harsh language. But, I am disturbed that some ABC affiliates were worried that the FCC would get them for showing the movie and therefore decided not to show it. Hmm.
On a sad note, I’ve read about the death of Iris Chang, a Chinese-American author whose book, “The Rape of Nanking” brought to light of the World War II atrocities of the Chinese city by the Japanese. She was an incredible Chinese-American writer.
