so today is columbus day. a holiday that has become so politically incorrect to celebrate in this country that it is probably the only event that justice antonin scalia will ever get invited to in new york city. he gets to be grand marshall of a parade that celebrates a holiday that the american indian movement wants to quash and who can blame them. on the same token it seems to be morphing into an italian st patricks day which is good because saint vincents day gets completely overshadowed by it. which is a plus i guess.
down side: bastard has to go to work today because the world's largest media conglomerate doesn't shutter it's doors for such politically incorrect whatnot. we have an asian employee group, a gay employee group, an african american employee group, and a women's employee group. it's kind of like college when there is a student union for every group under the sun except the perceived majority. i guess it's there to break the illusion of the glass ceiling here in publishing but it feels like that everyday is definitely not white boy day. the bastard understands. he worked his ass through college to get to where he is and that why i can sleep at night. the bastard has to deal, this is how it is.
plus side: no one else had to go to work today. bastard gets a peaceful commute. gets to think about shit. gets to feel a little bit better about yesterday. gets to feel a little bit more optimistic about today and maybe tomorrow. maybe.
