One of our amazing blogging veterans, The Foggy Dew, wishes the Marine Corps a happy 236th birthday. I know I speak for the whole DCBlogs community when I wish him, as well as all our men and women who wear the uniform, a safe and happy Veterans Day.

Madonna made news a few months ago by reportedly spurning a fan’s gift of flowers, sniffing, “I hate hydrangeas.” Well, if they looked anything like these, I can’t understand what the problem was. Beautiful flowers from Foam Core Fantasy to brighten up the dullness of November.
Hopefully, by the time you read this, all this news will be moot, but Nationals Review brings us a collection of sources to follow the story of Wilson Ramos, the catcher for our Washington Nationals who was kidnapped in Venezuela.

PSA time: on this Veterans Day, I just want to say how amazing the folks who serve us are. Being a member of the Iraq and Afghanistan generation, I tend to remember the service of all veterans by donating to Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, but there are any number of ways to commemorate service and sacrifice. So to Mackie, Matthew, Allison, Wayne, and Cheryl (five veterans near to my heart), as well as all veterans and current soldiers and sailors: Thank you.
