…since Keyser Soze flew his book depository into the Reichstag towers…

I am in a crabby mood because I blew off some things I shouldn’t have, and because I got sunburned on one side of my face due to inattention, and because weltschmerz. Therefore I would like to point out that this U.S. holiday called “Memorial Day” is the original day of remembrance for the dead of the U.S. Civil War, which was the worst thing ever to happen in this country, and which we should remember because so many people died or had their lives wrecked. And that the day we call Veterans Day was originally Armistice Day because it commemorated the end of the Great War which was the worst thing ever to happen in the entire world, and which we should remember because so many tens of millions of people died or had their lives wrecked.

And finally that the day our current administration wishes to call Patriot Day commemorates a disastrous terrorist attack on our nation and the final irreversible step from republic into empire, forever.

Hail Caesar and have a nice barbecue.

    1. I believe it.
      In Europe, every day is Armistice Day. It’s quite a shock to be driving through a tiny French town with two stores and a stop light and see the monument to the dead of the Great Way which is twenty feet tall and has a 100 names on it. You realize that the entire grown male population of that place was wiped out.

      1. I know jack about any war holidays, but that armistice thing sounds a whole fuck of a lot classier than a bunch of drunk rednecks sitting around, all bitter and sad because they’re not allowed to own black people anymore.
        I’m so glad I’m getting out of here soon.

    I just watched The Usual Suspects last night. Again synchronicity.
