Alabama Employees Enjoy a Day Off


Tomorrow is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Jefferson Davis. I suspect the day will come and go without much mention of the Davis bicentennial; however, I'll have more on that tomorrow.

In the meantime, allow me to wish state employees in Alabama a happy day off from work! Yes, the state of Alabama has declared the first Monday in June an official state holiday, in recognition of Jefferson Davis' 200th birthday. The Sons of Confederate Veterans held a ceremony at the capitol in Montgomery this afternoon.
