St. Valentine's Day

As every married man is aware, today is St. Valentine's Day.  Whatever the original intent, it is now a day set aside to celebrate romantic love. (and yes, Belle and I observe the proprieties).

In this PC era, though, it seems that it's not enough to celebrate love.  Some students actually signed a petition to ban it as offensive:
So  Campus Reform went to Cornell University to see how crazy it could get. They were armed with a fake petition to ban Valentine’s Day, ” on the grounds that it was simply too offensive to students without a romantic partner,” and it pushes the idea that “single people have no value.”
This is a silly-ass world that we live in.

Pshaw, I am single and it’s a little depressing. Still the idea that a tradition many people enjoy should be changed to protect my feelings never occurred to me. People are silly these days.
