When president Nixon died Shoshana had to work, but when Reagan died she got the day off. Now despite the death of president Ford she will have to work on Tuesday. When Reagan died the republicans controlled congress; fortunately that ends next week, and here in NY our new governor is a democrat. Also, many NYers remember Ford’s refusal to bail out a bankrupt NYC govt, though some now date NYC’s rebirth to Ford’s making us pull up our own socks. Shoshana thinks she ought to get a day off not only for President Ford’s burial but also for James Brown’s.
