Memorial Day 2012

For some Memorial Day is a day of joy, ushering in the unofficial day of summer.  For others it is a day of sadness.

For all it is a day of gratitude.

    Not only is Memorial day a day of all things in the article, which are genuine, but another reason for merchants to hawk their wares on “sale” to consumers. If we really cared, stores would close in remembrance.

  5. today about 6pm central time, Doc Watson died. He had fallen a week or so ago at his home then he had colon surgery. He was 89 and will be remembered for changing the way acoustic guitar was played.

    I visited the Kennedy graves on Memorial Day (among others). Flecked with single roses left by Arlington National Cemetery visitors. RFK’s grave is especially touching, with quotes from his speeches in South Africa in 1966 and in Indianapolis the night of Martin Luther King’s murder.

    President Obama spoke that day. Saw PBO arriving in his motorcade.

    I was just praying he’d be president next Memorial Day too.

  10. I think it is interesting how the left has looked at two of the biggest womanizers in the Democratic Party. Bill Clinton is generally loved by most all Dems and John Edwards is not loved. I don’t get it.

  11. Bill wasn’t married to Elizabeth Edwards! BTW happy birthday to Marilyn Monroe
