The Aug. 5-7 weekend was a long weekend. Especially, no doubt, for those of you who, like us, had to work on the "holiday" Monday. A long weekend indeed.
This might date the Gauntlet editorial board, but most of us can remember when grocery stores, bars, restaurants, et cetera were closed on statutory holidays. Now, one can buy nearly anything one could possibly desire on a holiday, from crispy bacon to frilly brassieres.
