Lest We Forget ... Memorial Day 2008

"Impeachment is off the table," said Pelosi, D-Calif. "Democrats are not about getting even. Democrats are about helping people get ahead."

Bill Moyers and Michael Winship: Memorial Day
Once upon a time, kids asked their fathers, "What did you do in the war, daddy?" It's a question the next generation could ask all of us who stood by as our government invaded Iraq to start a war whose purpose and rationale keep shifting and whose end is nowhere in sight, and who look now with nonchalance upon the unseen scars of those who are fighting it.

Or Barry Crimmins' "Forward Observance"
This Memorial Day is the first we will observe since losing a hero who was also a military veteran. His name was Bruce Phillips. You might have known him better as "Utah." Bruce may or may not have behaved heroically during his duty in Korea. His return home, according to his official obituary, was anything but heroic -- until misfortune led him to a providential destination.
