Question re: A Day Off to Honor President Ford

Issue: Seems a whole bunch of government offices will be closed today to, ahem, "honor" former President Gerald Ford. These include: Spokane Regional Health District offices,Spokane Valley City Hall, most federal government offices and courts will be closed. Also, there will be no regular mail delivery or retail services at post offices.

DFO: C'mon, government workers get a day off to "honor" a fill-in president who served 30 years ago? Sounds like a nice gig if you can get it.

Question: Should federal workers get a day off to honor President Ford?
