Local marketing, as Tip O'Neill might have said.

Bank holiday, my white ass. Blank holiday, maybe.

No, it's just August. Bank Holiday in the UK, even the computers in charge of our direct deposits took the day off instead of paying us.

The newspapers here call it the silly season--the only news is celebrity/royal public misbehavior or the imminent death of ska:

But actually, some of our biggest wars, catastrophes and ELE's have happened in August-- WWI, Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1990 and the Soviet countercoup attempt in 1991.

And speaking of trombones, there was supposed to be a march in support of Osama bin Laden in Trafalgar Square yesterday, but I can't find any mention of it. Maybe they cancelled it in favor jerk chicken and Red Stripe at the Notting Hill Carnival.
