There's an Associated Press story out of Atlanta that has Nola.com users commenting in droves. Apparently a bit of a controversy is brewing for some as it appear Barack Obama's inauguration day may be a "sick" day for some American workers.
The comments are an interesting read:
"Maybe the entire NOPD could take the day off to reflect. Would anyone notice???" - writes a user that goes by arabi9.
"I will be working as normal on Jan. 20th. I've never taken a day off for any other presidential inauguration, so why should I for this one." - writes louzyana
