    Should there be a "Steve Jobs Day" national holiday?

    On the news, they are talking about making October 14 "Steve Jobs Day". In my opinion, this is starting to take things a bit too far. Giving him a national holiday and putting him on an equal platform with men like Christopher Columbus, Martin Luther King and George Washington is bordering on the ridiculous.

    Maybe a day, but it wouldn't be a national holiday where you'd get off work/school.

    Obviously we all love Steve Jobs and are enthusiasts of his work. But we don't even have an Edison day.

    If 911 is not a national holiday then SJ definitely wouldn't be. Maybe within Apple...

    Christopher Columbus doesn't even really deserve a holiday. George Washington doesn't have his own, it's shared, and as amazing a man as he was, Martin Luther king did more for this country

    So as much as I mourn his death and feel he was an amazing human being, I agree giving him a holiday is taking it too far. I don't think Steve would have wanted that anyway

    He'll perhaps get a Google Doodle every year. But not a national holiday.

    Holiday? No. Perhaps a doodle as recommended above.

    If I get a paid day off, then yes! In fact, let's have a paid national holiday for every CEO in America and get every day off!

    Um...:rolleyes:

    Possibly Apple themselves will put on some special events / offers on the anniversary of his passing ?

    If Einstein, Edison, Ford, do not have a national holiday, I doubt Jobs will get one.

    People who suggests this kind of retarded proposal is the reason why I wish stupidity was a crime.

    Seriously, WTF?
