Via Gawker’s Defamer blog is a moving tribute to one of my favorite actors of all-time, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who left us way too early. This is a superb tribute and well worth a couple of minutes.

Via ESPN, a great tribute to Sean Taylor on the 5th anniversary of his passing.
Memorial Day is the day that we salute all the women and men who have served our country and given their life in the name of freedom. In war and peace these brave individuals make sacrifices far beyond what most of us appreciate. In the name of freedom, they give up the comfort and convenience of civilian life in order to protect our rights and liberties. Without their devotion to duty and dedication to freedom there simply would not be a United States of America.
On this Memorial Day, please make a point of remembering those women and men who have given the last full measure of devotion in the cause of freedom.
