War And Rumors Of War...

Memorial Day has come and gone. Back to the salt mines for us lot, then. Some of my favorite bloggers offered some very fine words on the meaning of Memorial Day, and how we commemorate it.

NTodd Pritsky at Dohiyi Mir, beautifully memorializes the life and Service of William H. Leach, 2nd Vermont Regiment of the Union Army.

Ed, at Gin And Tacos reminds us what's worth remembering.

Ramona Grigg reminds us that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney lied us into the Iraq War.

And finally, James Howard Kunstler notices that while we're busy grilling and watching big movies, some real ugliness, borne of those Bush/Cheney lies, is spreading throughout the Middle East.
