Independence Day: Time Off For Bad Behavior

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the work week which connects Monday to Friday, and to assume among the powers of the employed, a separate and equal holiday on Wednesday to which the laws of the nation and the nation’s History entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare Tuesday as half day as well.
We’re closing up shop early here today. A third of the staff is already halfway out the door, a third is half in the bag, and the rest of us want to “spend more time with our families.” (And one of us just wants to get out to East Egg before CNBC’s Margaret “Magic Maggie” Brennan’s job of reporting from the beach is done.) Tomorrow we’ll honor the remnants of American independence by not working at all. See you here Thursday. Until then you have our archives! (If you are one of the few, the sad, the unfortunate who are working over the weekend, please let us know. Email with a the story of abuses and usurpations of your employer.)
Happy July Fourth!
