On Monday, in honor of Memorial Day, we explored the true cost of American wars, the harrowing beauty of our military cemeteries abroad (see photograph), some creative ways to honor those who died in service, and a few stories by and about our soldiers.Throughout the rest of the week, we learned about the super bowl of spelling bees, the decaying state of roadside Americana, the power of open grain markets in Africa, and what this scandal at Oxford says about our contemporary view of poets. We also delved into the worlds of gay marriage (so hot right now) and genetically modified salmon, both of which spawned some great discussion.As of the writing of this post, there are still about 30 hours left for you to submit an idea for our Message in a Bottle Contest. Send something in. If we like it, we'll put it in our next issue.
