It’s June 6th — Isn’t Google Forgetting Something Again?

Last year on June 6th Google celebrated the 25th birthday of Tetris:


On June 6th the year before that, Google recognized the birthday of Spanish painter Diego Velasquez:


But today, June 6, 2010… nothing:


Google is purposefully ignoring a big event, aren’t they? Don’t they know that this is the 77th anniversary of the opening of the first drive-in movie theater? For shame.


Today of course is the 66th anniversary of the D-Day landings, and we don’t need Google to salute all those who helped liberate Europe and keep the Nazis from their goal of global domination. The fight for freedom is ongoing, and we must never waiver so that the sacrifices of these heroes will never have been in vain.

Many websites and blogs you might look at today that mention D-Day will post Ronald Reagan’s 40th anniversary speech in Normandy, and in the spirit of conformity, I’m going to do the same. It was a great speech and from the heart and not the prompter:

And of course there’s this classic: “How today’s media would have reported D-Day”:

Update: Bing certainly remembered that it was the D-Day anniversary when Google didn’t — or didn’t want to.
