Drop "Presidents Day"

The rather dismal story of Presidents Day cries out for reform. There should be one day to honor George Washington and another for Abraham Lincoln. The achievements of each man should be studied and celebrated in schools throughout the land. We should abandon this bland, commercialized holiday that dilutes what should be an acknowledgement of greatness.

I put my flag out today for George Washington, not for James Buchanan or Warren G. Harding.

What about Millard Fillmore? Don't forget Millard Fillmore.

I couldn't agree with this more. It should be ok for us to acknowledge and celebrate greatness. Greatness should serve as an inspiration for what we can accomplish.

How could I have overlooked Millard Fillmore?
