Long periods of peace and quiet favor certain optical illusions. Among them is the assumption that the invulnerability of the home is founded upon the Constitution and safe-guarded by it. In reality, it rests upon the father of the family who, accompanied by his sons, appears with an ax on the threshold of his dwelling. -- Ernst Junger

The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month
Whether you call it Remembrance Day, Armistice Day or Veterans day...
Thank you, veterans. Now, I'm off to take my father, late of the 27th Armored Infantry Regiment, 9th Armored Division, to the range, followed by a football game this evening.
