Memorial Day #1 -- May 26, 2008

On Memorial Day it is fitting and proper to remember the men and women who gave their lives, who continue to give their lives, to give us the country we deserve.
I was not downtown at the end of last week to buy a poppy.
Carl Nolte, in a nice article in the SF Chronicle, quoted General George S Patton: "In my mind, we are here to thank God that men like this lived, rather than regret that they died."
I took this photo on 14-December-2007 at the national cemetary in the Presidio.
The new lander made it safely to the North Pole region of Mars.
