    Sounds to me like that's worth the time.

      A vast guilt to the horror of imprisoning our own citizens.  Reparations paid and apologizes.  But, what some don't realize is that the case was never overturned and the wide powers exercised by the executive branch are still in place.  The test for us is not what we do in 50 years it's what we do when it's happening.

        Kids saying "not all Americans agreed" will matter, in the end.

        The same way we can take pride in the few who opposed the war in Phillipines, even if they accomplished virtually nothing.
