Sure enough, when the handbook came out a couple of months later, it said King Day was no longer a paid holiday.

Cause do you knows why?/ When Al and Jesse see their Maker, they be wantin' a holiday too. I mean we took Washington and Lincoln's Birthday away from da folks and combined them into "President's Day"; no time off just another capitalistic Retail sale, especially at WalMart.. MLK was at least a break 2 weeks after New Years and 3 weeks after Kwanzaa (this holiday be made so the "folks" can be gettin those 40-70 percent discounts and fill in the "Want List" from the Christmas thefts) before mah man had to be buying or stealin' mo bling for me for Valentine's day. That is my rationale, I hope you heed the advice.
