Happy Memorial Day!
(The following has possibly been edited from the original wire story)
(AP)WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama praised the men and women of America's fighting forces Memorial Day as the "best of America."
The president spoke after participating in a solemn Memorial Day tradition, laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Comic at Arlington National Cemetery. It is the burial ground for American Comics dating back to the Revolutionary War.
Why he put a wreath on a still living comedian is anybody's guess.
