Poison Pero is RIGHT!

"We understand your concern and interest in seeing a Veteran's (sic) Day Google logo. If we were to commemorate this holiday, we'd want to express reverence; however, as Google's special logos tend to be lighthearted in nature, this would be a particularly challenging design. We wouldn't want to create a graphic that could be interpreted as disrespectful in any way."

- Google response to a question why Veteran’s Day hasn’t been honored with a Google logo for the past eight years……Even though it does so for Canada’s Remembrance Day (the Canadian version of Veteran’s Day)………And also does such holidays as Halloween, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's birthday, the Persian New Year, the birthday of Percival Lowell, the Lunar New Year, the 250th birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Louis Braille's birthday.

**So, either Google considers it's graphics of other holidays okay to be "interpreted as disrespectful," or they are FULL OF SHIT and just making it up as they go.........For some reason I'm quite certain its the second one.**
