Welcome back to the world of work, folks. Unless you work for the government, that is. If that’s the case you’re off from work today because you’re mourning the loss of Gerald Ford.

My friend had a thought. Government employees should have to work 24 hours straight after the death of a president. Then they’d really mourn his loss. I like that.

If you have yet to vote for Franktuary, there’s still time to do so. A little less than two weeks, in fact. Click here to make it happen.

I leave you with this thought. “From the trash of Lake Erie, there finally spawned a snake.”
