I'm surprised there is no Red, White and Blue today to represent Sploofus. What's up with that? I waited all weekend and then thought Monday for sure. Isn't Memorial Day all about remembering? Please put up a flag, some color, anything.

Google has no special logo for today either. Curiouser and curiouser.

Well, my flag is flying.....too bad no one shows any remembrance anymore. That is a sad state of affairs.

By Rev. Dick Kozelka (ret)
First Congregational Church of Minnesota
Minneapolis, MN.
A Memorial Day Prayer

Eternal God,
Creator of years, of centuries,
Lord of whatever is beyond time,
Maker of all species and master of all history --
How shall we speak to you
from our smallness and inconsequence?
Except that you have called us to worship you
in spirit and in truth;
You have dignified us with loves and loyalties;
You have lifted us up with your lovingkindnesses.
Therefore we are bold to come before you without groveling
[though we sometimes feel that low]
and without fear
[though we are often anxious].
We sing with spirit and pray with courage
because you have dignified us;
You have redeemed us from the aimlessness
of things' going meaninglessly well.
God, lift the hearts of those
for whom this holiday is not just diversion,
but painful memory and continued deprivation.
Bless those whose dear ones have died
needlessly, wastefully [as it seems]
in accident or misadventure.
We remember with compassion those who have died
serving their countries
in the futility of combat.
There is none of us but must come to bereavement and separation,
when all the answers we are offered
fail the question death asks of each of us.
We believe that you will provide for us
as others have been provided with the fulfillment of
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted."

We can all take a moment and remember all who have sacrificed for us.

Thanks Cathy,(CJAR), that was kind of you to do. I'm still amazed that an editor spoke on the Rosie Odonnell post but as yet no one representing Sploofus has deemed it necessary to answer the question of Why there is no red white and blue today.

Tuzilla made many special holiday logos, but it is completely up to Justin whether or not they get any timely air time. Perhaps Justin is taking a long holiday. None of the editors have the ability to do anything on this matter.

LOL - I should imagine it's completely the opposite and Justin has been too busy with the v2 Beta to remember to put up the logo, isn't it?!
