It’s Veterans’ Day, and is also 11/11/11, which is mystifyingly wonderful for people who believe the Julian calendar means something other than a random way to mark time (I don’t mean to be dismissive, or maybe I do, but in either case I think it’s silly).

Veterans’ Day, though, is important. Like all of us, I’m sure, I have relatives who served in the military, and I honor those people who fought so that we wouldn’t have to. I wish there was a more meaningful and helpful thing to do other than say “Thank you,” but that’s all I’ve got.

So thank you.


PS: Props to Diane, whose cover soldier is the art for today.
