Happy Presidents’ Day

Yep, that’s today.

If you are old, you recall how this day was celebratred on Feb. 22, which was Washingtion’s Birthday. But given the fact we like three-day weekends, we can not do that anymore. So, we have Presidents’ Day.

You have to love the thinking: All presidents, apparently, are the same. It makes no difference if we are talking about Washington and Lincoln, or Fillmore and Taft. They all get a day.

Kind of silly, don’t you think? For my money, it was better when we just honored the presidents truly worth honoring.
