“Blue Balls Mystery Close to Being Solved”

Now, that’s my kind of headline.

Best, of all, it’s straight out of the Guardian.

On first reading, the question appears to be, why are those balls blue?

Numerous reasons come to mind, from the chronic to the acute.

But the real question is not why the blue balls, but how did they get there?

It seems that blue balls rained from the sky onto a garden in Dorset, England, creating a local frenzy about the origin and makeup.

These particular blue balls have been whisked off to the applied sciences section of Bournemouth University for a good going-over.

We are relieved to learn that these are not the balls of aliens, blue or otherwise, and await the final solving of this most curious case.

Very informative, Eric, and good background for the recent tragedy. Especially striking your description of the sky and mountains before dawn. Tom

People, apart from historians, tend to forget that D Day signaled some of the War's greatest losses. We tend to think of the landing on Omaha Beach as marking the end of the troubles, but by no means. Under the circumstances it is not just sad, but obscene, that the event would be treated cavalierly.

Americans either don't know or don't care to admit that without the enormous sacrifices and steady advances of the Red Army, the outcome at Normandy might have been very different.
