Remembering Patriots' Day

Today is the day we (most of us anyway) celebrate Patriots' Day, remembering the Battles of Lexington and Concord. It's also the day we remember the brave Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising (during WW2), and the senseless (and suspicious) deaths in the Oklahoma City bombing and the Mount Carmel/Branch Davidian Compound conflagration.

You might as well take the rest of the day off, because with all the "moments of silence" you're not gonna get anything else done today! Actually, you should celebrate the first one by going to the gun range and honing your rifleman skills. Speaking of Riflemen, Kim Du Toit has this reminder for today:
"Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom." --John F. Kennedy

PS To all those following the drama of Matt's New Texas Shirt, it arrived yesterday, before I got home from work. Now I'm ready for San Jacinto Day, on Thursday. :D
