Innocent Young Americans Went “Over the Rainbow” Permanently

It’s funny: whenever I watch The Wizard of Oz, I think about this: how many nice young men in Iowa and Indiana watched Judy Garland sing this song in movie theaters in 1939, only to lose their lives a few years later in faraway places like Guadalcanal and Tarawa Atoll in a war that wasn’t even theirs? And how ironic, the only reason we got into a feud with the Japanese was because doing so provided America with a “back door” into war with Germany. The whole thing was a clever set-up, and our innocent, small-town boys paid for it with their lives.
