Remembering Veteran’s Day

poppy.jpgNovember 11th — Veteran’s Day, or “Remembrance Day” as we call it in Canada. Stephen Colbert had a real zinger on the subject, while lamenting that Veteran’s Day sometimes slips through the cracks of our notice (unlike Labor Day, aka “Last Day to Wear White Pants”). Colbert notes, though, that “President Bush has a plan: Save Veteran’s Day by creating thousands of new veterans!” Yikes. The Colbert Report does not shrink from the edgy. We’ll have more on the CR later today with a report from our special correspondent on the ground (aka in the audience). In the meantime, if it’s not an oxymoron then I wish you a happy Veteran’s Day. Back later this morn.
