Don't Stop the Carnival!
If you are thinking of moving to the VI, "Don't Stop the Carnival" is on the recommended reading list. Sure it was written about a different, older VI, but many of the events ring true today.
In the "The work calendar has become a very light and unburdensome thing." section: The government "non-essential" employees have been given the following leave: half day Old Year's Day, all day New Year's, Friday, January 2nd and Monday, January 5th (for the inauguration.) Don't try getting any bidness done! 😛
Oh, this is after last week when they had leave 1/2 day Wednesday, all day Thursday and Friday. *-)
