The Queens Gazette Misleads Readers on Washington's Birthday Holiday! (There is no such thing as Presidents/Presidents'/President's Day.)

Above is an editorial in the current edition of the Queens Gazette (February 12, 2014;  Vol.33, Number 7).  Note that the writer states that Washington's birthday WAS a federal holiday.  The writer could not be further from the truth.

Here is the actual copy of the so-called Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1968 and . . .

. . . please note it clearly states that the third Monday in February is Washington's Birthday.  Not a "Presidents/Presidents'/President's" Day as commercial interests and ignorant boobs have recently called it.  [They can't even get the existence and placement of the apostrophe in their misnomer correct!]

So Publisher/Editor Tony Barsamian of the Queens Gazette, you have contributed to the denigration of the Father of Our Country, the Great Washington, for which this Monday's holiday is dedicated.  You are greviously mistaken that we are to commemorate every Tom, Dick, and Harry President that has come down the pike.
