  • Okay well there may be another MLK day. If needed should MLK day be used to make a snow day or something?

  • No, I don't think so. It's a Federal holiday... schools are supposed to closed!! You can't just honor someone when it's convenient for you... it's either national holiday or it isn't... you can't have your feet on both sides of the fence!

    We had snow days in Georgia and some counties used today as a make up day.

    What the hell are you talking about? It's taught in schools, it's all over the TV. There is a holiday after him. What more do you want?
