Today is Veterans Day:
An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U. S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday—a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as “Armistice Day.” Armistice Day was primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after World War II had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the Nation’s history; after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting in its place the word “Veterans.” With the approval of this legislation (Public Law 380) on June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars. …
Can you take another post about Ebola? Just a few bits of new information and some commentary:
Yes, we can!
Catch Ebola from surfaces, upon which the virus can survive for nearly two months! We can also catch Ebola from sitting next to someone on public transportation, from airborne droplets, and even from toilet seats. We can catch Ebola not only from the seats, but also from simply being in the same restroom with, or after it’s used by, a person with Ebola, given the particulars of how our modern toilets so rigorously flush, sending aerosolized waste droplets flying. Isn’t THAT special?
Yes, that is a stuffed Ebola virus “toy” in the photo above. Isn’t he cute?

Let not their sacrifices be in vain.
D-Day, June 6, 1944:
Supreme Commander Eisenhower speaks with his troops.
Recently, a disturbing story hit the national mainstream media, although it has been discussed in the blogosphere for quite a while. More recently, the story showed up at the Drudge Report, guaranteeing wider coverage.
Better late than never. It’s good to see that some in the mainstream media are willing to play catch up and to sound an alarm that we’ve been clanging from the beginning of the Obama administration. This particular story involves Obama’s Department of Defense (DOD) and an apparently ultra vires directive they “quietly” issued.
