Dear Reader (Including the sleeper FBI agents waiting for their moment to storm The Dispatch),
Happy Juneteenth (Observed)!
If you asked me in the abstract whether America needed another federal holiday, I’d have said, “No.” After the pandemic, America doesn’t need more time off, it needs to get back to work. But, if you asked me if Juneteenth should be a federal holiday, I’d have said, “Sure.” Juneteenth is a good thing for all Americans, not just black Americans, to celebrate.
Apparently some people disagree.
