      for this being an observed holiday, I don't know of too many people that are off today.

        Just the people that work for the government.

        Every company generally has the same holidays off except for the one between Christmas and Memorial Day. Some have MLK Day, others President's Day and even a few with Good Friday.

        Years ago most had off Good Friday but you don't see that as much these days. My company does President's Day but in the 7 years I've been here I've never been able to have it off. I'd say the fewest have MLK. Not cause they don't like black people but just that it is so close to Christmas.

                Aren't those all owned by the government? Including the banks being as I keep hear about Obama socializing things.

                Traffic was light coming in so that was nice.

                What I don't like are the day NBA games being played today cause I can't watch. It's like the Rockets are playing the Cubs.

                  Banks--No. Even my little po-dunk credit union is closed.

                  Post offices--last time I saw, they were not a .gov, they are a .com and are always closed on any major holiday no matter if it is a federal one or not

                  Schools--private and public are not in session

                  There are afternoon NHL games too if that makes you feel better.

                    Yes, but no.

                    When I worked for the PLCB, which was a state job, I know we were off one year and we had a few holidays taken away from us a year or so later.

                    Martin Luther King Day was one of them.

                      It's a holiday for us.

                      And here I am with about half the office still working anyway.

                        Not a holiday for us but I'm off anyway since I was on the road all weekend, so I took a personal day.

                        Related to the day, I'm watching King on History. Despite reports of his philandering, the man truly was an American hero and a great man. Too bad Rev. Jesse didn't follow his frind's lead more closely.

                              Post offices aren't part of the government? That's a new one.
