Weird Holidays yarr
Talk Like A Pirate ayee
In response to the request for weird holidays I am reminded that Sept 16th is "Talk Like a Pirate Day" in the US.
A bit of trivia about those who govern the USA in the most critical time of the last recession the members of the House spent more time working out special days "National Cheese Day" for example, than they did working on the budget.
I strongly expect the current group of legislators to find something to look at other than our current crises.
Once I was asked why is the President (W. Bush) looking into the possibilities of traveling into outer space by a child. My answer was that is much less depressing than looking at the mess he had made here on earth.
Maybe we can name a day after him something like "New Cold War Day" or maybe "Last Straw Day"
