    A corporation provided these wreaths? :clap2:

    Don't tell Hugo Chavez. He thinks capitalism is evil.

    (Hugo Chavez said in his presentation at COP15 that there was a "silent and terrible ghost in the room" called capitalism, the reactive applause of those attending was beyond enthusiastic.)

    When we drove through Maine years ago, there was a family that had a flag on their lawn for each American soldier dead from our invasion of Iraq. I wonder if they still do that as the occupation goes on and on....

    It's a current event. I was just listening to Chavez's speech and then I see a story about an 'evil corporation' doing something nice for our veterans. The timing was amusing to me.
