Today, August 9, is Book Lovers Day, International Day of the World’s Indigenous People, National Hand Holding Day (US), National Polka Day (US), National Veep Day (US — the anniversary of President Richard Nixon’s resignation in 1974), and National Rice Pudding Day (US). It seems that today would be a good day to enjoy a book, hold a friend’s hand, dance the polka, and show some respect for indigenous people as well as governmental checks and balances.
