Happy Valentine's Day!
The Paco Command Center is presently blanketed under a foot of snow, and the Yankee government, which was closed yesterday, is offering employees liberal leave today (i.e., you can use your annual leave without prior permission). I guess I ought to be makin' with the snow shovel.
Elsewhere, the federal government continues to suppress the spirit of private enterprise: "FAA Grounds Valentine’s Flower Delivery Drone".
Update: Regular readers of this blog are familiar with my stories about J. Packington Paco III, captain of industry and scourge of the nanny state, more familiarly known as "J.P." I always lead off with a photo of Sydney Greenstreet, whose girth and elegant attire make him look like a cartoon of Capital.
Well, this morning Mrs. Paco and I were watching a movie we hadn't seen before - Some Way with Women - a romantic comedy from 1947 starring Greenstreet, Dane Clark and Martha Vickers. In this film, Sydney Greenstreet portrays an automobile industry tycoon familiarly known as...J.P. I found the coincidence delightful.
Update II: Modern Valentine's Day sentiment...
Update III: Ah, what a cute couple!
