This is the second year that MLK Day is declared an institute holiday.
You would think that with such a diverse community on campus that a day commemorating civil rights and equalities would have been honored earlier. But no, scientists probably don’t think much about social holidays. It’s just lumped with the all encompassing category of liberal arts. And liberal arts here, to be honest, is dead.
Actually, I’m jealous. People get a day off–a longer holiday, a three day weekend. On the other hand, I’m working today. It would take an act of God for me to even have a two day weekend. So you may ask why I’m not working now since this happens to be an entry. It’s lunch break, that’s why.
