Neil O. Nelson

Presidents Day was observed again this year without much fanfare, I’m guessing.

I confess I did nothing.

Zero. Nadda. Zilch. Zip.

But then I didn’t do much for Valentine’s Day, either.

I suggested what everyone else could or should do for Valentine’s Day, but do you suppose I followed up on any of my suggestions?

Nope. Not a chance. No siree.

That’s what editorial liberty in writing a column gives a columnist. He or she can tell you what to do, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he or she has to follow suit.

In my case, I seldom do what I suggest you should do. That’s because I’m old with a pre-existing condition.
