... watched over Nazis in their prison cells and stood guard beside the witness box in the courtroom where the evils of genocide were detailed. One time, he filled the glass of one of the most powerful Nazis - Hermann Goring - with toilet water.

Images of dead soldiers getting used for false patriotic jingoism, yet we as a society couldn't bother to care for them properly when they were alive.  Farking charming.

I appreciate the time and effort it took to pay tribute to those lost at the Holyoke Soldiers Home.  Thanks to all involved, and my condolences to the families for their loss.

Yes, they were soldiers - but they were so much more to their families and communities.  All will be missed.

This virus cares nothing for your patriotism or lack thereof.  Do everything you can to keep safe yourself, those you love and those you care nothing about.

Take a moment at 3 P.M. Monday to honor and mourn the military personnel who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

No?

I guess it's just really dusty then.
