The famous Labor Day post

As you know every year I write a very special Labor Day post. These are kind of noteworthy to people who follow clerkmanifesto, a real occasion of sorts. I look forward to it too. It's a post that people pay a lot of attention to, and I really like to make it shine.

Often, in the weeks running up to the big annual Labor Day essay I get a great deal of comments, ideas, letters, emails, and questions about my upcoming post. I take these very seriously. I'd like to share a few of these with you.

If you'll just give me a moment.


Where did I put them? I can't seem to find any. 

Odd. Maybe they're with last year's Labor Day post.


This is strange. There is no last year's Labor Day post at all. In fact, I can't find any Labor Day post at all. I just did a search and I've never even mentioned Labor Day in any of my 1,600 essays. Nor is it mentioned in any comment or email.

Well, to tell you the truth, that all sort of makes sense. 

If you can't say it on Labor Day when can you say it:

Work kind of sucks.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
