It would save money, too

George Bush --

This Memorial Day, I ask all Americans to honor the sacrifices of those who have served you and our country. One way to do so is by joining in a moment of remembrance that will be marked across our country at 3:00 p.m. local time. At that moment, Major League Baseball games will pause, the National Memorial Day parade will halt, Amtrak trains will blow their whistles, and buglers in military cemeteries will play Taps. You can participate by placing a flag at a veteran's grave, taking your family to the battlefields where freedom was defended, or saying a silent prayer for all the Americans who were delivered out of the agony of war to meet their Creator.

There he goes again co-opting God for his war. If war is bad but you get to meet God at at the end of it, how bad can it be? Incidentally, the only battlefields that most Americans could visit on Memorial Day would be Civil War era, so which side is he taking in that?

One other thing: How about having the 3pm moment include no one driving?
