Memorial Day-Enjoy and remember...

Doesn't mean that the holiday can't be celebrated; just remember why. I reference Steve G.'s post down a bit:

i just put the flag up on the terrace.

not many flags flying off residences in the nw bronx.

i always fly the flag on holidays.

to me, there is a reverence that is demanded.

from 2016-2020 the flag was flown upside down as a distress signal.

this year there is a sadness: buffalo, uvalde, roe, fla vs disney.

but we still need to be hopeful and thus remain committed to acknowledging the debt of others who allowed us to live in a country though riddled with problems is still "free".

thumbs up.

The Chief ’s eye flashed; but presently
Softened itself, as sheathes
film the mother-eagle’s eye
When her bruised eaglet breathes:

‘You’re wounded!’ ‘Nay’, his soldier’s pride
Touched to the quick, he said:
‘I’m killed, Sire!’ And, his Chief beside,
Smiling, the boy fell dead.


- Incident of the French Camp, Robert Browning

Thank you, rob, for your service.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
