The best news around here (okay, among some of us) is the new additions to the cast of SNL. Note the second is the third generation member of a great American comedic family.
To another matter: An American hero was laid to a final rest today -- there are varying stories as to why it was delayed -- but there's no disputing the heroism Connie Charlton displayed for his country on a battlefield a long time ago and far, far from home.
Sergeant Cornelius "Connie" Charlton, 21, an African American posthumous recipient of the Medal of Honor during the Korean War, was re-interred with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery in a moving ceremony that brought closure to his family who felt that Arlington Cemetery was his rightful final resting place. Medal recipients Barney Barnum and Brian Thacker represented the Society at the ceremony.
