We’re No. 1(1-11-11)

It is eleventy-eleven day, and late this morning everything will come up ones, when it is 11:11:11 a.m. on 11-11-11.

It is also Washington statehood day. On this day in 1889, Washington became a state.

It is also Armistice Day. On this day in 1918 at 11 a.m., a cease fire took hold to end the Great War. (We know it as World War I, but in those days, they apparently didn't have the sense to number their world wars.)

Most of all, it's Veterans Day, to which Armistice Day was cha nged, to honor veterans of the wars before and after World War I. If you're a veteran, you deserve the day off; if you're not a veteran and have the day off, thank the first person in military uniform you meet.
