Kelebrate Konstitution (or Kitizenship) Day

Today is "Constitution Day!"

From Wikipedia:

Constitution Day (or Citizenship Day) is an American federal observance that recognizes the ratification of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. It is observed on September 17, the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787.

The law establishing the holiday was created in 2004 with the passage of an amendment by Senator Robert Byrd to the Omnibus spending bill of 2004.

Yes, the man responsible for the Constitution Day is Robert Byrd --who was once a member of the Ku Klux Klan. I wonder if he's going to celebrate with a bonfire?
