President's Day 2011

By Ed O'Keefe

Monday is a federal holiday, meaning most (but certainly not all) federal employees have the day off. At the federal level, the holiday is officially known as "Washington's Birthday."

Many private establishments, most schools and universities, banks and the U.S. Postal Service also have the day off.

We need to go back to celebrating Washington, Lincoln and Jefferson's birthdays on their actual dates like we used to, and dump this presidents day nonsense, which pushes our Founders and their immortal successors into our historical background.

DEAR HARAD : I 'll tell you why your wish won't be realized. Because today's politicians are being held hostage by a group who only number 12% of the Population. And so Washington and Lincoln are merged into one for big business's reasons, and a Full Federal Holiday is given to Martin Luther King . King who only represented one segment of the country, and even Kennedy and Johnson who bowed to them for their votes, haven't gotten a holiday in their honor. Now lets see if this post gets in , as I still don't see my last one here in print.
