Presidents Day! Time for car, furniture, and mattress sales. For many it’s a day to jump start some Springtime fun.

I was searching the intertubes for information about George Washington when I came across the National Geographic YouTube channel. This looks like an interesting episode. From the comments it also looks like many are not happy with the “recent discoveries” about George Washington. What do you think?
