Columbus Day 2008

Good morning, Netizens...

In a brief tap dance with mother reality, we present the following tidbits of information about today, Columbus Day.

According to the City of Spokane, Parking meters don’t have to be plugged on Monday, Oct. 13, because of the Columbus Day holiday. City of Spokane offices, however, are open as usual on Monday, and garbage pickup and curbside recycling will proceed on a normal schedule.
The Spokane City Council briefing session and legislative meeting will be held on their regular schedule on Monday, Oct. 13, at 3:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. respectively in the City Council Chambers in the lower level of City Hall, 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd.
Riverfront Park’s Imax Theater is open on Columbus Day. Check Spokane Riverfront Park for the schedule.

According to a variety of sources online, all bank branches and federal offices will be closed Monday because of the Columbus Day holiday. That includes the Postal Service, which will not provide mail delivery or window service.
All city, county and state offices will be open for business as usual.

All the rest of the peonage, including the kitchen drudges, have to work. Why do the federal agencies get the day off but we, the unwashed masses have to work?
