Memorial Day song

One of my favorites, "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream", written by Ed McCurdy. A version from Johnny Cash:

Also, good Memorial Day reading from Charlie Pierce, Loving the Warrior, Hating the Wars: Our Memorial Daze Esquire Politics Blog 05/25/2012: "Supporting The Troops always has been a more complicated business than applauding at the ballpark."

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
