I almost forgot to mention that Obama's not laying a wreath at Arlington today, being on vacation in Chicago. He did, however, send a stand-in: Biden.

As is so often the case, Glenn Greenwald comes up with an appropriate focal point for our reflections on Memorial Day.

On a day when the meaning of "heroism" is often discussed, the people on these ships who tried to deliver aid to Gazans, knowing that they could easily find themselves in a confrontation with the Israeli Navy but doing it anyway in order to bring attention to the extraordinary injustice and cruelty of the blockade, are pure, unadulterated heroes.
