I won't forget next year.

Happy belated Juneteenth Day!

Next year I will remember, on time.

Fortunately, Congress did not forget.

I like the wording of that Resolution, "history should be regarded as a means for understanding the past and solving the challenges of the future..." Sounds like a good start.

Hm, actually looks like Congress did kind of forget. They didn't pass the resolution until two days after the holiday. Though it was introduced before then obviously. Did Bush say anything about the holiday? I didn't hear him, but I'm sometimes guilty of not paying him much attention.

On a semi-related note, check out Immortal Technique for some aggressive (understatement?) political rhymes. I don't agree with all of it --- that's for sure (for example, the anti-abortion couplet that sometimes appears front and center on his home page) --- but I'm jazzed to find some good new (to-me) hip-hop.
