Emancipation Day: What Do You Think?

Over on his Raw Fisher blog, Post columnist Marc Fisher is tackling the question of what should be done with the District's Emancipation Day holiday:

Tough times call for tough action, and D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty has now proposed to eliminate a public holiday -- Emancipation Day.

What's that, you say? Well, it's coming right up -- April 16 -- but because the official holiday is just four years old, it still comes as a surprise both to commuters and to city residents, who wake up one fine spring morning each year to learn that the reversible lanes on Connecticut Avenue aren't reversing, and the trash isn't being picked up, and on and on.

To read his take -- and offer your own -- read his post on Raw Fisher.

Let me get this straight. He's handling the Fenty household budget, the school budget as well as the teacher's budgets, the cab drivers' budgets, and the city budget? Wow, that's a lot of budgets.

I think that we need to be emmancipated from this joke of a mayor, his chancellor and his godfather, Nickles. Now that the felons(Peaceaholics) are sending city property to the Dominican Republic, what's next? Why wasn't that story in the WP?
