    is sacred.  Personally, I think we should have 10 floating holidays -- I don't see why Christmas is a federal holiday.  That would fuck with the CEO's heads and allow people to take the days which are meaningful to them.  I'd take my parents' birthdays for two then I don't know.  

    I have to work on Thanksgiving because I have a brief do the next day.  I'm self-employed.

      I'm one of them.  Hell, I work on every "holiday."

      Wall Street, though, never works on any federal holiday.

      And Congress usually takes off one or two weeks for every federal holiday.  Ain't that nice.  

      And the convicted cocaine buyer/user:  He gets to take a "leave of absence" and is donating his salary to some charity -- probably a charity that denies women healthcare.  Added bonus:  HE DOESN'T LOSE HIS FREAKIN' HEALTHCARE INSURACE FOR BUYING COCAINE.  Nice, huh?
