Used to be that all the stores were closed today. Working folks (except for those involved in public safety or the swimming pools) had the day off. School hadn't started and the political campaigns didn't begin 'til tomorrow.
Now, it's just another excuse to shop while the politicos pay lip service to those ungrateful slugs that are told they're lucky to have a job (and probably won't be getting a paid day off).
What's next "Capital Day"??? -- stay tuned
