It may end up being a Federal Holiday, but think if he put that out there now. How are we going to pay for it would be the cry from "some people".

MLK day, Columbus day and president's day should not be federal holidays.

Honoring one person with a holiday is not necessary. MLK was a salute to all the Civil rights folks IMHO. He was the person they chose because he was killed and represented the entire movement. Why Columbus day is a holiday is beyond me. I am not sure if we want to "celebrate" the death and destruction of 9/11.

I typed that while I was doing a number of different things. I change a couple of things in there. Christmas is a whole different ball of wax.

I agree it's different. It's so encultured into American society that it's far more than a celebration of Christ. Plus I would reckon that about 90% of American's celebrate Christmas in some way. I am fairly confident that the number of people that give a damn about MLK day, Columbus day, or Presidents day is much smaller.
