It’s been less than a year since Jan. 6, 2021, and we have not even declared it a national holiday. That could be because there’s nothing to celebrate. Plus, there’s a bunch of long weekends already squeezed in a short space of time. Besides, we’ll get to a four-day workweek soon enough, and then what? A three-day workweek on holidays?

Besides, sentencing has hardly started for the alleged Jan. 6 insurrectionists. In fact, the investigation hasn’t concluded for the mass crime that some dare call treason and some, particularly Republicans, dare call a bunch of innocents who, while taking a tourist trip to the Capitol building, were met with a fusillade of law enforcement overreaction. But if you believe the polls, only the partisans would have such flights of fancy.
