Today is Memorial Day in the United States of America. And to recognize the day, Google, Yahoo, AOL, Live.com, Ask.com, DogPile and others have special logos up. Google, who is known not to show a special logo for the day, has placed a little yellow ribbon below the search box. This is a historic move for Google, since they gone on record as saying the Google logo is not appropriate for the day.

I wonder how much cash is being wasted on those 1 day logos.

Google acknowledged memorial day finally for the simple reason that their president, Barack Obama, is now in office. It has nothing to do with the men and women who have sacrificed for our country. It is purely political. I would wage a million dollars that if a Republican was elected for this term they would not have acknowledged memorial day.
