Santa Barbara peace activists observed Veterans Day by hosting what may be the last installation of Arlington West, the symbolic graveyard honoring those killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. One thousand crosses were installed and 1,000 candles lit as the sun went down Sunday afternoon while politicos and activists delivered speeches marking the event.

Still claiming falsely to honor the fallen I see... glad that the unwilling victims of this fake memorial finally will no longer have to suffer having their names used for political purposes without their permission. Shame on Santa Barbara for allowing this to go on for as long as it did.
