It is the sixty-fifth anniversary of the Normandy landings – and it’s been obviously discussed in great detail around the ‘Net. Anything that I could add has probably been said already, so I will merely note the date and my profound respect and admiration for those men who fought and died to liberate Western Europe.
[UPDATE] Actually, this bugs me a little about myself that I felt the need to publish the above self-indulgent blather. It’s all true, of course – but it’s also pretentious of me to pretend that the universe was waiting for me to type that out.
Sorry to bother you with it.
