"Historic Low Usage Sunday"

Oh Seattle Public Library System, you are a tricky one! By renaming Easter "Historic Low Usage Sunday" you have cleverly maintained our society's Christian dominance under the guise of municipal non-denominationalism. Good job. Learning doesn't take a break for religion! In fact, Easter is a great day to hit the books, since all the fun privately-owned places are closed. Plus, there are always bums looking for a free place to warm up, even on major Judeochristian holidays.

It's not the fact that the library is closed that gets to me or even that a governmental body is closed for a religious holiday: what bugs me is the PC facade. Just say you're closed for Easter instead of making something up
