Fallen heroes, stand up and take a bow!

Speaking in New Mexico yesterday, Barack Obama left some scratching their heads at this line...

On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.

Clearly he was referring to the veterans in the audience and not the war dead for whom we celebrate Memorial Day. It was an honest mistake but it still made me laugh.
