Long weekends are appreciated by almost everyone — the almost is attached to people who have to work them or to newspaper editors and reporters who have to fill pages regardless of whether the rest of the world is on vacation and not answering or returning phone calls.
So, happy Monday! The rest of the world is back after what was four days off for many. People are answering their phones and all is right with the world. Well, OK, I agree, we’d all rather be on vacation. But if we’re here trying to gather news, it’s a bit comforting that have the expectation that the people we call will actually pick up the phone.
And for those of you who were working over the past several days and did return our phone calls, thanks. We couldn’t have done it without you.
