    Geez, all those "National _____ Day" holidays are an entirely different beast! National Ice Cream Day (some time in March?), National Library Week (in April, I think), National Make Up a National Day Day (Feb. 30th?)...

    Yes, but everyone gets the same low, low price. Would that have been true before MLK?
