Poppies

I took a brief look this morning through some of the main media presence. Here in Canada, google.ca came through with a poppy motif, as did the CBC main news page surprisingly. The UK had a mixed message with the BBC main news site focusing on Obama’s win of Florida, but google.co.uk did have the poppy motif. The US fared the worst with my mini-survey. Google.com had nothing, not even its doodles. CNN – well no prominent stories. Has Canada been slowly gaining the moral high ground on visibly supporting and being proud of our troops, or are countries like the US just continuing their relentless “forward” march.
