SOME SAY Presidents Day; others President’s Day. We’re calling it Presidents’ Day. The federal holiday is observed on the third Monday in February, but as for what to call it, there is no agreed-upon name, nor about who is being celebrated—Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, all three, just one or two? And where the apostrophe is supposed to be in the name varies.

This year it’s the day after Valentine’s Day, and the day after the Senate acquitted a former president of inciting violence against the U.S. government.

Can’t you just feel Abraham Lincoln’s (above) stare?
