In the US, this coming Monday is the Labor Day holiday, meant to honor the American labor movement, and the contributions that workers have made to the prosperity of the country. It also unofficially marks the end of summer (though given climate change, we should now all be past outdated rules about wearing white clothing after Labor Day). We’re off for the long weekend with posts to resume on Tuesday. As summer draws to a close, and we try to ease back into the daily grind, I’ll leave you with the words of the great Elvis Costello — “Oh I know it don’t thrill you, I hope it don’t kill you.”

Well, there’s always next year. But I prefer younger, bitter Elvis to older, content Elvis.
