Wait, It's a Holiday?

You might not have noticed it, what with you having to be at work and all, but today is a holiday. That means that you won't be getting mail, and you don't have to go to court -- city, state, or federal (we're looking at you, Patrick Fitzgerald).

And if you still need to get out of the office and feel like a kid again, there's a parade this afternoon.
