On this day:

Monday Holidays

Another pet peeve of mine is the Monday holiday thing. Washington's Birthday is on Feb. 22, and that's the day it should be celebrated, whether or not that affords guv'mint employees the luxury of a three-day weekend. Screw convenience. I'm sure that camping out at Valley Forge wasn't too convenient most days. Neither was leading an army across the icy Delaware river on Christmas night. I'll bet a three-day respite from fighting the Redcoats would have been nice from time to would have really helped to improve "employee morale."

Anyway...I'm gonna quit whining and get back to work now.

Oh, and be sure to tune back in tomorrow for the celebration of Washington's Birthday.
