President’s Day IN SONG!

Here in the states it’s President’s Day also known as Washington’s Birthday (which is not always celebrated on his birthday). It’s a way of celebrating all presidents, especially Washington and Lincoln.

Theres many ways to celebrate President’s Day but one of the ways I like to is in song. First with the Animaniacs whose song only goes up to President Clinton and then withJonathan Coulton‘s whose song only goes up to President Bush, the second (for now).

Oh and one more thing, listen until the ending on Jonathan Coulton’s song, it’s worth it.

  • You know, we've all been there. We want to make it work with CSS. But sometimes it's just not worth the effort. The hacks and conditional comments ruin our clean markup.

Ashley, a 14 year-old who's tired of having sex with all these men and wants out, but Aisha and Mercedes, both veterans of Oakland's streets, explain that leaving prostitution isn't that easy.
