Veterans Day 101

Veterans Day 101…

I know I’m getting older, and I know that my “mental issues” can confuse my sense of time, but I swear that we’ve celebrated Veterans Day at least once already this year – just as I did last year and the year before. The thing is however, if it’s just my mind going bad, then why does it just affect my memories of Veterans Day? I mean, it’s not like I remember a previous Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday this year…

So I decided to do a “more than one veterans day?” search and found only references to the one that happens today. Maybe I phrased the question wrong. Or perhaps there are celebrations specific to my location that Google didn’t pick up on. Hell, I don’t know, maybe I’m just freaking crazy.

All In with Chris Hayes - Threat Assessment

Assessing Threats…

Yesterday’s news was, as always, chock full of things the media thinks we should be worried about. Good grief man – I swear that if you watch enough of the news, you’ll start to believe there’s a full blown apocalypse going on outside your windows!

Which, of course, is exactly why I found this little ‘perspective adjustment’ from last night’s All In with Chris Hayes on MSNBC so damned refreshing…
