Today is Veteran's Day here in the Good Ol' USA. It used to be called Armistice Day. It's one of those partial holidays: everyone who can justify closing, does. Banks, Post Office, courts, municipal offices, etc. But strangely enough, veterans like me don't get the day off unless we work for one of those places. Seems kind of strange, doesn't it? (Well, of course, to be honest, I could take the day off. But I work for a tyrant. Myself.)
Veterans Day “Holiday”
by Dan Shafer •
So since most of us don't or can't take the day off, let me salute my fellow service men and women who have served their country over the years in so many different ways and who form an important element of the lifeblood of America. Let's salute one another.
OK, enough celebration. Now back to work!
