    "Presidents' Day" was NOT celebrated in 1889 (which was not even one of the choices you gave!). This terms replaced "Washington's Birthday" at the behest of corporate retail in the 1980's. Was 1987 the correct choice?

    Hey, YOu folks are wrong regarding your trivia qustion as to the start of President's Day Holiday. As opposed to your answer of 1885, President's day Holiday is the result of a decision in 1971 by then President Nixon to mark Feb. 22 as President's day Holiday to replace the prior recognition of Washington's Birthday on Feb 22 and Lincoln's Birthday on Feb 12, and to commemorate all past presidents.

    One correction, President Day Holiday is designated for the 3rd Monday of Feb. not necessarily the 22nd...as I mistakenly stated.

    "Invite" is a verb. The Palace has sent invitations, not invites. Political heads of state are not being invited, so Obama is not being snubbed.

    Hi:

    You just reported, on CNN Newsroom, that pizzas are being ordered from all of the world and country to be delivered to the protesters in Wisconsin. Is there any similar thing being coordinated for any of the protests in the Middle East? They truly are the ones who would need this type of donation.
    Thanks!

    Did you really tell the Gov of Ohio that "this is MY show" I guess you told him. Ha.
