    Seems like government workers and closeted old queens are the only ones. My kid is home from school, teachers unions must have Don Buchwald representing them, they find more bogus days to take off than Howard.

    Funny how at one time they didn't take Columbus day off and they made fun of sal for thinking they had off and now they take it off. Yet I bet sal and the rest of the peons are still working today.

    Yup, another day at work for me.....roads are pretty easy to navigate, I think people take the day off more than those who are off, I know I'm always looking for a 3 day weekend

    Teachers seem to be masters at that, my kid has today off and had 1/2 day on Friday for "teacher planning day". What they we planning is the best route out of town for their three day weekend.

    For some reason it is a decent sized holiday in Massachusetts with schools closed and a lot of people off. But we need this day off since the ebola virus is now spreading through the state, it may be the last holiday we have to spend with our loved ones.

    ...here in seattle they have officially changed columbus day to "indigenous peoples day". im not kidding. theres a group of italians protesting the name change telling the mayor there are 364 other days that could be used to celebrate indigenous peoples day.

    Here in FL most people don't even know about Columbus Day. It's a northern thing.

    No... Unfortunately.. I don't get holidays off unless it's thanksgiving or Christmas.. To tell you the truth though. I'm kinda glad. No paid holidays for me.. Hey, anyone know if the post office is still running today? That would be nice if it wasn't..

    I'm at work, but my boss isn't. So it's like a 1/2 holiday.
