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.
