Thursday is Area Code Day

Happy Area Code Day

So far this month we've had Square Root Day (3/3/09), Pi Day (3/14, best celebrated at 1:59) and a second consecutive Friday the 13th. Today we have a purely local celebration, and I don't mean St. Joseph's Day (the Czech St. Pats). It's Area Code Day! We celebrate by playing Ludacris. Here's what's happening on 3/19 in the 319:

  • One person's "pork" is another person's local economy.

  • Poll (pdf): Obama beats Palin by 20 points. "Obama would easily win more than 400 electoral votes in a contest against Palin at this point in time."

  • To celebrate, the Prez is taking the Smallest Farm concept to the White House lawn, which was last done by Eleanor Roosevelt during WWII. Maybe Vilsack can come over to help detassel.

    Interesting...I hadn't heard of Area Code Day falling anytime in March, though I suppose promoting alternate Area Code Days is a cool way of showing neighborhood pride!
