    So.... is anyone actually doing this? It falls on a Thursday and since I work for "corporate America" just me being at work spends money and makes money. And me phoning in sick to try and stop that would end up causing the company to spend more money on my salary for a job that isn't getting done. Wow, quite the pickle!

    My question would be how is not spending any money one one day going to effect our religious leaders?
