Guess I'd better brace myself for all that extra work I'm going to have to do tomorrow:
People across the country are being urged to skip work Wednesday after calling in "gay."
The loosely organized protest, called "Day Without a Gay," (www.daywithoutagay.org) is intended as a statement against California's ban on same-sex marriage, along with other political developments considered anti-gay.
Well, yes, I'm sure that will get a lot of sympathy for the cause in Fort Wayne. You remember how much good will for the illegal-immigrant cause "A Day Without a Mexican" generated here. Maybe I should urge a boycott by the Cranky Old White Guys Who Hold Companies Together Despite Getting Grief From All Quarters. No, it would be mean-spirited and politically incorrect. Besides, that really would turn this recession into a full-fledged depression.
Or maybe I should finally follow through on my threat to "call in well" one of these days. "Hi, I'm sorry, but I can't come to work today today. I just feel too darned good, and I don't want to spoil it." Tomorrow, I'm thinking.
