Why don't we just call it Associate's Day?

Ah - a holiday weekend.

If it was Memorial Day, half the news broadcast would be spent on shots at the VA and a ceremony at the National Cemetery.

If it was Thanksgiving, we’d get stories about soup kitchens, returning soldiers, and pre-Christmas sales.

If it was Christmas, we’d get shots of returning soldiers and soup kitchens.

But this is Labor Day, and doing stories about working class issues might be a little awkward in a part of the country where news anchors genuflect as Wal-Mart press releases are treated like manna from Heaven.  So instead we’ll have what we always have - hard-hitting stories about how folks amuse themselves on the Labor Day weekend.

Yee-haw!
