George Washington's Birthday.

Before the meaningless "president's day" this country used to celebrate Washington's birthday - and unlike "MLK" he was worthy of a national holiday - it was traditionally celebrated with balls and dances. I can remember, in recent memory my grandmother and mother putting silhouettes of GW in the window, and draping flag bunting as one would on the 4th.

It really should make a comeback - often - as the weather is proving today - this is the bleakest time of the year. But perhaps a meaningless government and meaningless 'nation' should have meaningless holidays like politically correct MLK day.

What would the father of our country, who warned us to stay out of foreign affairs, say about neocons?
