When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the work week which connects Monday to Friday, and to assume among the powers of the employed, a separate and equal holiday on Monday to which the laws of the nation and the nation’s History entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare Friday as half day as well.

Half the staff is halfway out the door and the rest of us want to “spend more time with our families.” We’re closing up shop early here today. (Monday we’ll honor the remnants of American independence by not working at all. See you here Tuesday. Until then you have our archives! (If you are one of the few, the sad, the unfortunate who are working over the weekend, please let us know. Email with us a story to NetNet@cnbc.com of abuses and usurpations of your employer.)

Happy July Fourth!
