Geo. Washington’s birthday should be observed on Feb. 22, asserts Rep. Wolf

Does anyone celebrate his or her birthday on the third Monday of a month? "Of course not," huffed Rep. Frank Wolf. "So why do we diminish the memory of the greatest American by turning his birthday into nothing more than a three-day weekend," Wolf asked a Congressional subcommittee today. There's a move afoot in Congress to observe the Feb. 22 birthday of George Washington, the Father of Our Country and First President of the United States, on Feb. 22 instead of on the third Monday in February. Wolf and Rep. Gerry Connolly, who represent areas of Prince William County and Manassas, and Rep. Jim Moran,, who represents the area that includes Mount Vernon, George Washington's home, are co-sponsors of the bill.
