Gitmo Days Off

Ok, I know I have trouble separating the real from the surreal but here is the latest message from the good people at Gitmo: (By the way... my trip for the 14th is safe unless they decide to celebrate Bastille day!).

"Good afternoon
I have listed below upcoming holiday periods. Please do not request to visit with your clients during that time.
July 4 - Independence Day
September 1 - Labor Day
October 13 - Columbus Day
November 10 - 11 - Veterans Day
November 27-28 - Thanksgiving
December 25 - 26 Christmas
December 31 - January 1 - New Years Day
Also, I have again attached the habeas visit coordination form you should be using to request visits with your clients. Thank you
I laughed out loud when I saw Columbus day on the list... for many reasons... but the one I was actually thinking about was when my brother (who is also an attorney) didn't show up for work his first day as an attorney. He was rudely awakened by his boss who wondered where he was. Seems no one takes that day off except students… and I guess the “folks” down at gitmo….sigh.
