    They took Columbus Day as a day off away from our school district and added it to Thanksgiving so the kidlets have an entire week off for gobbling and stuffing. :rolleyes: They also took away the Friday before Memorial Day and tacked it onto President's Day, so they have a four day weekend . . . in the middle of freaking winter. Blarg.

    Interesting...there was a time in America where Italians (immigrant Italians) were not considered white.

    The parents and teachers (don't even ask the kids) in our school district wanted a five-day Thanksgiving week, and the school board approved it. OK, then someone had the bright idea of doing the four-day late winter break: we managed to head that one off; the teachers were not about to add more teaching days to the contract in June. School board politics are fun!

    They have made him out to be an oppressive A-hole though.
