(For those of you who missed it, we blogged on Law Day yesterday.) Still trying to decide if we should write him a letter to correct the mistake...
I'll bet you know about the illegal alien amnesty marches, but I don't know of a single news organization, electronic or print that pointed out that May 1 is America's Law Day.
