Monday’s Headlines: Presidents’ Day Edition

We're off today, but we'll give you something to chew on.

Officially, we're going to take off today to honor some of America's presidents, though certainly not all of them! Frankly, they're mostly bums from Washington until Lincoln. And then, besides Grant, maybe you have a good chief executive or two, but you don't have a truly decent person until Jimmy Carter. And well know what happened to him.

We'll be back tomorrow with lots of great stories. But make sure you click on our homepage at around 10 am on Monday for some personal news. It's worth it.

If you want a little news, here's some dribs and drabs from the weekend:

  • OK, so the Department of Transportation's Travis Kelce meme was stupid, but the Post's jeremiad against it was uncalled for.
