Tomorrow is Martin Luther King, Jr Day (observed). Always thought that "observed" on the end of any holiday was kinda pointless. If it's already a holiday, then it is observed, otherwise it would just be a regular day. Anyway, MLK has taught me something. You can do some great things in the world, but in the end, how do they reward you? That's right, with a sale at JC Penny. They turn your life into a 20% discount on your birthday (or birthday observed). I wonder if Lincoln would have freed the slaves if he knew someday his birthday would be a great time to buy a mattress. Ironically the guy died in a bed that was too small for him.
