      Memorial Day becoming just another day, so Veteran's Day becomes the day for the war dead, and the living vets just end up getting sidelined more and more because the distiniction of one day for the dead and one day for the living doesn't get made clearly.

      Prayers and best wishes to those in Boston, in Texas, and for this week to be over without anything else happening.
