The South...

You know how I always say that I hate the South, how I'd never live there (ok, lets ignore the fact that MD is below the Mason Dixon line...you know what I mean)...

From wonkette.com:
Honoring MLK Day, the Mississippi Way

We are honoring Martin Luther King Day as we always do, by staying in bed until noon and starting drinking at one. In fact, we like to think of every day as Martin Luther King Day. The folks in Mississippi, on the other hand, prefer not to think about MLK day much at all! If you -- as reader J. did -- call the Mississippi tax commission today (601-923-7000), you'll find that the office is closed " in observance of Robert E Lee's and Martin Luther King's birthdays." We love this. We imagine it was floated as a way to get the bigots to observe a federal holiday and avoid being targeted by Chuck D -- a compromise about as meaningful as the Missouri one, really. If this is the case, we wonder what other kinds of intrastate racial tit-for-tat deals might be in the works. What about, "you can date our daughters as long as we can whip you for it after?"

NOTE: Really, no shit: That is the number of the Mississippi tax commission.

va (where you work, also south of the mason dixon line) is the same story. actually, i just googled it and i was wrong. va used to be the same but now its different.


go virginia! im moving north.

In the Commonwealth of Virginia, it wasn't until very recently that we started celebrating the Martin L. King Day. Before we used to celebrate Lee-Jackson-King Day.

Sic Semper Tyrannis!
