martin luther king day is one of those national holidays that isn't much of a holiday for me because i gotta work. the law must go on! or something like that. except, that it never has to go on on christmas, or new years, or independence day, or memorial day, or labor day, or thanksgiving. plus the courts are all closed today.
in any case, it is nice that this is the last january 21st under bush's presidency. it's been a long time since we could say that with any degree of certainty. so even if i gotta work, there is at least a light at the end of the tunnel.
