France is remembering the defeat of Nazi forces 60 years ago by allied forces. For the first time, the leader of Germany has been invited. I keep flashing back to that increadible scene in "Saving Private Ryan" which pictured the "taking" of Omaha Beach. Amazing that 250 000 young men lost their lives.

I'm a little bit saddened to see that it was overshadowed quite a bit on CNN by Ronald Reagen's death (although he was a great man). I had to go to BBC to see what was going on.
