Occupy Leap Day

Four years ago our friend Karl started the No Work On Leap Day Revolution, arguing that the extra day every four years should be yours to enjoy, not squandered working for The Man. You can catch his revolutionary fervor in this interview in the Washington Post.

This month ¡La lucha continua! The struggle continues by skipping the struggle altogether. Make your plans now to take the day off. Let the kids stay home from school. Fan the flames of Revolution on Facebook, or whatever it is you kids do nowadays. Heck, tell The Man to take the day off, too—he’s looking a little peaky.

    Great idea. I read the interview again. I had read it four years ago and thought what a great idea never connecting it with someone I might know – actually knew at the time. Leap Day always having been special to me it just made it more fun. Eric is printing the poster for me. You have been very busy writing in here. Good job.

      Thanks, Gail. Your good opinion means even more because you’re 50% of my readership. I’m counting on you to spread the word!
