Tuesday’s Holiday

Via John Cole I find that someone at AP apparently believes that only blacks are taking Inauguration Day off.  My office will be closed on Tuesday to celebrate the inauguration. I gave the instructions back in October–if Obama wins we would close. I’m not going to miss that day.

If McCain won, some employees thought they should have more time to take off to drink to handle their misery or plan their moves to Canada, but I saw no reason to treat it different from any other day.

George Bush was inaugurated on a Saturday so, while I wouldn’t have closed the office for that, I was able to watch on television. I primarily remember the networks following Bill Clinton around for what seemed like all afternoon as he kept talking to people and didn’t want to leave.
