President’s Day

Have you heard that here in the U.S. tomorrow is a holiday? I heard someone say earlier in the week that there would be a delay of stuff until Tuesday because of the Monday holiday, and I was confused. “What holiday?” I wondered. “Surely President’s Day is on the 24th and not the 17th.”

But it’s not. It’s this Monday. How did I start losing holidays? Last year I had to work President’s Day (huge application was due at the end of the week, and we had to get everything together – hundreds of pages of stuff, with a good result).  I think that it may be because I try not to think about the Presidency anymore.

This week we’ve got lots of great music, with Melody Gardot, Al Jarreau, Brittany Howard, the Roots, Eddie Floyd, Otis Redding, Billy Preston, Lou Ann Barton, Samantha Fish, Shemekia Copeland, Dani Wilde, Christine Perfect, the Rezillos, and Aztec Camera.
