It's a great day to evacuate

You have to hand it to Massachusetts Democratic legislators -- they stick to their guns, even if it mans shooting themselves in the foot.

While Deval Patrick used the day to engage, among other things, in an online chat with Herald readers from his office and legislative Republicans took the time to entertain bored reporters with green-sprinkled cookies, the Democrats did what they are doing increasingly more of -- staying away from the marble corridors.

But it probably wasn't a great day for interacting with the non-public employee voters outside of Suffolk County who didn't get the day off.

It really should not take a rocket scientist to figure out that special holidays -- which may once have had some significance -- are the kind of perk that drives taxpayers wild. And if they want to continue to be members of the Great and General Court after this volatile election season, they really should figure that out before Bunker Hill Day.
