Presidents Day: Ugh!

There's something very corporate about Presidents Day.

It's like a boss who is so afraid to single out anyone for recognition that everyone gets a prize, even the slugs and the scoundrels.

In short, it's ridiculous. George Washington and Abraham Lincoln deserve separate holidays. They earned them. The others didn't. There are some close contenders - Franklin D. Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan come to mind - but close doesn't do it. Washington and Lincoln are the ones.

You can barely turn on the television without finding some Hollywood tribute to, well, Hollywood and the two major presidents don't get honored?
