    GMAFB. There are plenty of businesses open. Including my doctor's office,
    and you know the kind of hours doctors keep (gotta get in those 18 holes,
    y'know). :)

    It'd be cool if 7/5 was offpeak this year, but I don't see any compelling
    reason to complain because it's not.

    What crap?

    July 5th is not a holiday. EVERYTHING would be open if July 4th
    fell on a weekday, and as it is, only banks and government agencies
    are taking the day off across the board. Some private businesses are
    closed; many are open.

    The only reason people are getting time off today is because they didn't
    get to get the 4th off because it was a day most of them wouldn't have been
    working anyhow.
