President’s Day Weekend

What a complicated world in which we live. OK, today is President Lincoln’s birthday. It used to be a federal holiday. But then some wise guy suggested we should combine Lincoln and Washington’s birthdays, into one holiday. And, to make sure no one gets offended, we’ll make it for ALL of the presidents. So, if Lincoln’s birthday was still a holiday, we would have gotten a three-day weekend. But it’s not, so we’re back to two. But wait, Presidents’ Day this year falls on this coming Monday, so now we DO get a three-day weekend this weekend. And THAT, ladies and gentlemen is your federal government at work.
