Well, just to see if I can get someone to comment on anything- Growing up in Virginia I never knew of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday. We had a holiday but it was always Lee, Jackson, King Day. Lee was Robert E., Jackson was Stonewall, and King was Martin Luther. True story.

Growing up where the "N word" was common and not considered a curse, I'm surprised I knew who King was.

South Carolina workers have the option of taking MLK Day or Confederate Memorial Day, right? I think that happened after I left.

Here at Duke, classes are out of session (which doesn't even happen for Independence Day). To make up for it, the semester starts a day early. It always leads to confusion because last Wednesday was actually a Monday.

There should be a Lafayette Day.
