Remember Me To One Who Lies There

Today is Memorial Day in the US. It's the day we honor our fallen heroes by... eating hotdogs... and watching fireworks displays? That's some sacrifice we're making in return, eh?

As it's a holiday, I'm taking a holiday from writing a proper post today. However, you can always check out this week's
Fragmentia 13 if you have not yet done so.

I am presuming your 'Memorial Day' is like our ANZAC day.

IF we don't learn from history we are bound to repeat it.
Sad isn't it?
Peace. Peace. Peace.

I dunno... what's even more strange is that it's wrestler Andre the Giant? since when is he a political figure?
