Out of the Blue

Today is National Medal of Honor Day. Word is: "Conceived in the State of Washington, this holiday should be one of our most revered. Unfortunately all too many Americans are not even aware of its existence." Thanks Joker961 for helping raise our awareness.

On a lighter note, today is also Tolkien Reading Day, celebrated on what is the (spoiler alert) downfall of Sauron. You're going to have to hurry to fit in the entire trilogy before tomorrow. Not sure if you're allowed to skip The Hobbit.

When I read this, my first thought was "When's Call of Duty day?". (In my defense, the game is the only Medal of Honour in this country.) The ones that really bug me are things like "National Disability Awareness Day". So it's cool if I ignore the disabled the other 364 days then? That's handy.

What's the 3rd entry on that Admiral Akbar test? Maria von Trapp?
