The Arlington cemetery vote

Harold "Hal" Groves enlisted in the Air Force in 1953, earned a commission and his wings in 1955, and flew as an F-4 pilot during the Vietnam War. He worked for Boeing for fourteen years, finally retiring to Myrtle Beach, Florida. He died in August, leaving behind a wonderful funeral notice online. The last sentence has attracted some attention: "In lieu of flowers, Hal has requested that donations be made to your local animal shelter or to any candidate running against Barack Obama in 2012."

Mr. Groves will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery on December 9 at 9 a.m. I wonder if the president will attend? Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
