It looks like most of us stayed home this morning due to the ice. But many workers were already off today in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Question: Are they bitter that they don't get the benefit of a surprise "don't-go-to-work" day? More importantly, will this strain race relations in Wise County?
Sidenote: Channel 8 just teased their noon newscast with: "And if a trip to the zoo was part of your plans for MLK day, we've got some important news you need to hear." (As they showed footage of an ape with the words "Zoo Closed" underneath him). Well . . . there goes my afternoon.
