WAR: DON'T TREAD ON MY BUDGET

Best of the Web Today is back, and today's edition has loads of goodies, some of them a week or two old if you're just returning from vacation yourself. Here's one from TIME magazine: the Navy is bringing back the "Dont Tread On Me" battle flag.

Whose sensibilities would this likely appeal to? Well, Don Rumsfeld comes to mind . . .
