Rich Johnston is a Brit. yet on all of our holidays he gets his article in on the next day.

I have seen other CBR articls on US holidays but to he best of my recolection he always gets his in on the next day.

I don't understand why most any web-based columns would take labor day off when they can just set it to auto-update the week before.

He writes the column it's down to his US overlords to put them up on the site.

It's all about page hits for advertising rates. And if everyone's off work on a Monday, that's a lot of people that aren't on the internet.

The Goddamn Schweitz!

It's funny because you think people going to a site like that it would be the opposite...

He doesn't upload them himself I assume. Also I don't think he takes British ones off.

Oh, it's Labor Day. I was wondering why some of the sights I like to visit hadn't updated.

Celebrates the American working man by giving him a day off. ;)

It is a celebration in appreciation of organized labor, and a way to give the working man a day off. I'm pretty sure it's going to be canceled before too much longer...
It also marks the official end of summer in the US. Lots of seasonal areas (beaches, mountain resorts) cut back their rates and services, as most of their temporary work force goes back to school.
The current thinking is that white is acceptable after Labor Day. White pumps, however, are tacky!

A national holiday in the United States and Canada in honor of working people. Labor Day is observed on the first Monday in September.

Yet people in retail still have to work, and all we get is a lowsy time and a half.

As far as wearing white: http://ask.yahoo.com/20020913.html
