Happy Memorial Day

I've spent my weekend trying to get ahead on grading and planning (Yikes, the paper! When will I no longer feel assaulted by paper?) and intermittently dashing off on the Metro and bus lines to local memorial sites. It is very nice to be DC-adjacent when the national holidays come around. I mean, you can choose to go to a barbeque and just have a day off to relax, but it's also really easy to choose to commemorate the dead by going to the places we have designated for commemorating the dead.

Happy Memorial Day to you, too!

(You put me to shame, because I spend several weeks a year in DC and never go to any of the war memorials. Heck, my grandfather is buried at Arlington. Perhaps I will make it a resolution for next year to do something suitable to mark the day.)
