Google Celebrates Another American Holiday

…by totally ignoring it on their splash page. And once again, as with Memorial Day, the Dogpile seach engine does commemorate it. As I wrote back in May:

Yesterday, Go Daddy, the Internet registraton Website celebrated the Marines’ 231st birthday with a tribute so patriotic it would have caused tubercular blue state veins to pop throughout Google’s boardroom if an employee there had proposed it.

(On the hand, Google’s silence is far more admirable than this quote from the Australian Age’s Terry Lane.)

Update: Found via the Corner, the Canadian version of Google celebrates Remembrance Day. But I guess that would have been far too jingoistic for the boys in Mountain View.
