Presidential Precedents

Today is President's Day.  It is a day of artifice.  We the people of the United States opted out of honoring the Father of our Nation and the Savior of the Nation separately - although each was (as is Yours truly) a February baby - so that we could morph the observance of their birthdays into one "made for your convenience" day.   If you are not working today, then enjoy your day off. 
The Firm is closed today.  Having taken last Monday off as part of my extended Florida vacation I am observing the holiday by working.  Truth be told, whether we had returned home on time or not I would be doing what I am doing today:  taking the depositions of a couple of plaintiffs in a civil rights case I am defending for a town that I represent.  It promises to be a very, very long day.  But it is what it is:  a day.  Another one will follow right behind it. 
A very wise man once observed, “Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.”  Sage advice.  Whatever is on your docket today, go at it with vigor and conviction.    Positive thinking.  'Tis a very good thing....
