Friday is Be Nasty Day

Most of the Usual Suspects concur on this: Friday, March 8 is Be Nasty Day -- a day to celebrate your inner jerk.

Hope you like celebrating alone.

For the rest of us, Friday will be International Women's Day. According to Wikipedia, International Women's Day was originally sponsored by socialist movements around the world, subsequently getting promoted up by both the U.N. and in the former Eastern Bloc. International Women's Day remains a holiday in Russia and in 14 other nations (many of these being at one time within the U.S.S.R.).

And speaking of the old "evil empire," Friday will mark the 30th anniversary of President Ronald Reagan's March 8, 1983 speech to the National Association of Evangelicals in Orlando, Florida. This was the first time that President Reagan referred to our old Cold War adversary as an "evil empire."

Friday will also be National Proofreading Day. We here at The Blog of Days strive, of course, for 100% accuracy and perfect grammar and punctuation in every post. We too often fall short. We resolve to do better every day, and particularly tomorrow.
