Even Labor Day itself shows how much the labor movement in the U.S. has been ground down since the very beginning. Despite scores of workers being killed by government troops and scores more being injured, they refused to grant workers May 1 as Labor Day because they didn't want workers to develop sympathy with the international labor movement.
Today I'm hosting a Chef Summit at work (yes, the config-mgmt kind, not the food kind). Expecting 250 attendees, with catered food and door prizes. I managed to line up the Chef CTO as the keynote. Going to be crazy awesome!!! You should be jealous.
I got to unwrap my birthday gifts this morning at 2am and 6am courtesy of the little person. They were still fresh, he is so thoughtful that way. I am still awaiting the marching bands and dancing girls.
