Presidents’ Day

Every third Monday in February our nation celebrates Presidents’ Day. Really? Presidents’ Day? What have these guys done that’s so worthy of celebration? Successfully lifting our country from the depths of crippling recession;  ending slavery;  establishing our 2-term limit on the presidency; establishing a national bank; giving American Indians citizenship; starting social security; setting fair labor standards…
Well, ok. I guess those are pretty good accomplishments- certainly noteworthy, but deserving of a whole national holiday? On the other hand, things could be worse.
