    The link doesn't work anymore, but it's interesting that I saw this because just today I was thinking about how I get SO much more work done when I have a 3 day weekend. I really think I personally would benefit from working for 4 days and having 3 days off....I think I would take less time off as well because looking at my personal track record, I seem to take a lot of Mondays off because I'm trying to finish up homework that I didn't have time to complete over the weekend. Interesting concept...

Sick das are down (no one calls in sick when a three day weekend is on the way), but savings in energy consumption have not met predictions. This will be very different for schools, I presume, that operate their own bus systems, because it will eliminate at least two trips every day.
