Response to Sirveri (Reply #5)

6. WWII vet Vonnegut was really p.o. ed that they took Armistice Day,

a memorial to peace, and militarized it. The WWI vets didn't want 'The War to End All Wars' to happen again.

Separate issue: do you remember when Poppy bush was campaigning (9-7-88) and told his audience that September 7 was the anniversary of Pearl Harbor? Strange mistake for a Pacific theater WWII 'hero' to make. Previously, he had twice mislabeled Memorial Day, at the Kennebunkport Memorial Day event (5-30-88), as 'Veterans Day'.

+1 to your post for the correction Sirv, and +1 to the o.p. I just chimed in for the opportunity to bash the oil nazis.
