Take 1/3 day off in support of DC

Another reason, besides 1/4″ of snow, to take some time off work, for those of you who are opposed to taxation without representation. (meanwhile, shame on Montgomery country, unnecessary ginormous SUV capital of the universe, to close all schools for 1/2″ of snow.)

    I would think that the “unnecessary ginormous SUV capital of the universe” would be somewhere in Texas.
