      Technically they already did it. This past weekend, probably out of convenience since the 4th falls on a weeknight and getting out of work Thursday isn’t easy on people. Though like moving Halloween earlier to a weekend for the convenience of waking up late the next morning, it’s still odd to not do a day of celebration. https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/park-news/2018/z-ir081

      She’s too busy censoring and defining incidents as “racial” to worry about editing well.
