Oops, 7 Days. Hey look I don't update on weekends.

Happy Juneteenth!

to all. I always thought that this would have made a better holiday than MLK Jr. day.

Anyways, all my American non-melanin challenged friends, taking the day off?

Hmm.. the drive to work was odd this morning. All the orange plastic barrels lining the construction had been removed from their rubber bases and strewn about, left to lay on their sides. There were no workman.

I thought briefly that maybe it was some form of silent protest because one of them was hit by a car or something. It just seems 'off'.

I wonder if this has anything to do with that?

It was the day in 1865 that the last slaves found out that they were freed. Black people have been observing this unofficially (AFAIK) since.

Heh!  We've been reading it all this time, and nobody else caught it.

Time warp!

I've been wondering that for hours, but figured maybe it was some IT in-joke that they forget to tell me about.
