Wow, it's finally here.  A day that only happens once every four years!  Am I talking about Inauguration Day?  Nope, it's Leap Year Day.  It really seems this day is not celebrated enough.  There are a lot of really good things about this day.  One is that if you are black, you get to celebrate Black History Month for an extra 24 hours.  That right there should make 20% of Americans happy.  
If you like nudity, you might enjoy knowing that in 1960, Hugh Hefner opened the first Playboy Club in Chicago, or if you are a TV buff, you probably know that the final episode of M.A.S. H. aired on this date in 1983.  WOW, has it been that long?
Regardless, it's a good extra day we've been given this year to spend wisely.  Hug your wife and kids, pet the dog, pause to reflect on your life, pray for our troops and their families, or go out and register to vote.    The important thing is to make good use of this extra 24 hours because once it's gone, it's gone.  Happy Leap Year Day!
