This is more suited to Memorial Day, but I think of this stanza frequently. From For the Fallen:
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
For my Grandfather, and all who have served, and those who serve now. Thank you.
I need everyone to pay attention to what @Uber CEO @dkhos is saying here.
Not only is he running cover for the Saudi government by saying the pre-planned murder of a @washingtonpost writer was a "mistake", he compares the murder of a human being to Uber making a tech glitch.
What an ass. 🤬
Shoutout to my colleague Adam Schiff. He's doing a masterful job conducting hearings & releasing transcripts, & will bring back witnesses to testify publicly. Trump can't intimidate Schiff or stop the facts. He should just take a cue from Nixon, pack up his tanning bed & leave.

Your PSA for the day. You’re welcome. Keep them doggies safe
