    When I was a gradeschool kid in the early 60s - CC was considered an icon.

    Alwsays noted.

    Yet majorpapers like TheSeattleTimes dindt even note Columbus Day.

    I reside in King County Wa - first named for a southern politician - then chanded to honor MLK Jr (withouta vote btw)

    The Seattle times fails to mention a lot of things. Its progressive that way.

    On the plus side though as a worker based out of Seattle you get paid sick days. The fact business is leaving the city limits should be of no concern. Look how Detroit turned out.

    Not surprised. The Peoples' Republic of Washington can be a strange place.

    Kind of late noticing this, aren't you? Perhaps you remember the big 500th Anniversary celebrations in 1991? NO?!?! I guess that's because there weren't any! CC's legacy has been mixed and only kids and government employees get the day off, anyway. So what news the was the paper supposed to report?

    It WAS voted on in the county council and by the state legislature. Maybe this is why they went for the change. William R. King - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Why are we paying for a Federal holidays that are no longer being taught in the schools. Same for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Progressives don't like these days so we should make them work those days instead of giving them the day off with pay :cuckoo:
