George Washington was born on February 22, 1732. So, it makes total sense that we don’t have to go to work on February 20th, 2012. We’re taking a much-needed day off from scouring the Internet for breaking news and listicles from out-of-town publications that cast Philly in a negative light. Please know that while we may not be in the office today, we are out on a mission to better ourselves and make meaningful contributions to society. Who am I kidding? We’re all watching Netflix and emailing each other links to YouTube videos of cats doing stupid and adorable things—which is exactly what America’s forefathers would have wanted. Happy Presidents Day, everybody.
