White Conqueror's Day: Every day should be a government holiday. While I assume most normal people don't get Columbus Day off (I'm sure few are even aware it's today -- Google doesn't even have a Google-Doodle for today), federal government workers get a three-day weekend. Here in Washington, DC, that means almost everybody is gone.

Except for me, of course. But I still get to enjoy the day nonetheless. The Beltway was free of traffic for my drive home this morning. I didn't almost get run over as often as usual on M Street during my bike ride to work. And there was no line at Subway for lunch.

Funny, whether it's because of budget impasses or obscure holidays, life just seems better when the government shuts down.
