Patriots Day.

Tax Day is delayed in Massachusetts.


Most don’t know why.

We don’t teach History anymore. Today I was at my PT for spinal, I asked the young therapist if she knew why the race in Boston is called the “Marathon”. She didn’t so I talked to her for five minutes about the Persians, the Greeks, and the battlefield of Marathon. And of an Athenian runner named Pheidippides. We were twenty miles south of Boston. Boston, the “Athens of American”.
Patriots Day should mean something more than, no trash collection, delayed one day.
