as some guy said....


Jim took this picture when we were at the Korean War memorial. This is, by the way, our favorite of all the memorials in DC - it communicates how miserable the war was while still respecting those involved (as opposed to the overly-jubilant WWII and the overwhelming Vietnam). However, evidently sign-maker is not sure if it is truly an act of respect to stay off the stones. Or is pointing to a famous quotation that I don't know.

Here we go with the political commentary again...

Here's another angle of that pic:

It lets you see the even stranger choice of two sets of opening quotation marks. It caught my eye as well when I visited.

Clearly these are the words of a brave man who is buried at this spot.

Yeah, francois, because there are a ton of people out there who think the war was awesome.

Commenting on the respectfulness of a memorial is not really political commentary...
