We’re in Belgium! And the British have taken out the V2 launching sites. Even to the bitter end, the Germans, desperate to knock Britain out of the fight, launched their latest secret weapon, a composite of two different planes loaded with explosives, landed without doing any damage or causing casualties. On the eastern front, the Reds have linked up with Marshall Tito’s partisans as they push on to Bulgaria and Greece. There could hardly be better news for the Labor Day weekend. But Daddy says not to get excited because “It’s not over till the fat lady sings.” Whoever she is, I wish she’d get started!
