Happy Columbus Day

I’ve always wanted to have off for Columbus Day, so I could know what it feels like to be a federal worker. Well, now I finally have a Columbus Day off for the first time since I was in college. I’d be more thrilled if the circumstances were different, but I’ll take what I can get these days.

UPDATE: Quick Columbus day trivia. Columbus Day is something celebrated more among Italian-Americans than many other ethic groups. Philadelphia, traditionally having a largish Italian population, renamed a road in the city to Columbus Boulevard. I still call it Delaware Avenue.

    CA. state workers no longer have this day off. Instead they give us a floating day to take off. Paid. Thanks unions (sarc).

    Is it one way, like all of the other steets in Philly? I could strangle Ben Franklin for that travesty…
