  2. >Oh, OK. I can do this: The larks, still bravely singing, fly…It was a well-intentioned mistake that we turned this into “Veterans Day.” To commemorate a specific civilizational trauma–even one nobody alive remembers–was appropriately solemn. But we Americans, we have to Universalize. And to just celebrate “veterans” always risks becoming another version of “the Old Lie; Dulce et Decorum est / Pro patria mori.”(Today’s Verification Word: alisetim. Seems like maybe garbled Arabic, like one of those Latinized star names. Aldebaran, et al.)
