MOURNING

I just found out that I work in one of the non-essential Federal offices covered under President Bush's memo for the National Day of Mourning in honor of President Reagan. That means I get Friday off of work. To be honest, I feel rather guilty about enjoying a vacation day a week after a President died. I feel like I should find something meaningful to do Friday to show my respect instead of just hanging around the house and knitting. I'll have to come up with something fitting.

2 You could always knit something patriotic. Hell, you could just do whatever makes you happy. Don't you think Reagan would have approved of that?

3 I agree with Sigivald -- President Reagan would have wanted you to enjoy your free time and appreciate your liberty to do as you please.

5 I hope you used your time constructively . . . maybe you could have read a book on statistics.

6 Do you know anyone with hostages? You could trade arms for the hostages. Or perhaps you could lay a wreath on the grave of a dead Nazi.
