11/11


Playing the Last Post at the Menin Gate in Ypres

Today is the 11th day of the 11th month. Armistice Day 86 years ago, now Veterans Day. While the Mainstream Media (and especially the BBC World Service) today swoon over the death of a murderous terrorist and kleptocrat, let's remember to thank the many who for many years and to this very day fight the totalitarians and the terrorists of this world.

Thank you, vets.

The Scotsman has a story of the Menin Gate ceremony, and the Boston Globe has a fine column by Jon Soltz marking this day.
