Memorial Day

Watched a stupid movie called Stage Door Canteen with Lili last night, as corny and jingoistic as anything you’ll ever see, but here’s the thing. When was the last time you saw a whole movie, or even a whole TV show, the entire purpose of which was to make soldiers feel loved, honored, and good about themselves and the war they were fighting? Maybe it’s because WWII was the last good war, but those were not the last good soldiers. I wish there were something more recent to make today’s soldiers feel loved, honored and good about themselves, but for now, Gypsy Rose Lee taking off not very much at all will have to do.
