I read the page as instruction to be attentive to content *and* context.
The who matters little in comparison to the what. Fascinating to me that
things like the logo and that page can generate so much list mail.


I've been asking Google for a Veteran's Day logo since 2000,
maybe 1999. I was told they finally did a Veteran's Day logo,
but none of the links I was given return anything but a
normal Google logo.

Sad, very sad. Maybe the Chinese Government didn't like it?
