Labour Day, May Day, Beltane.
If today and in the next few days you have trouble rousting people in Norway, Italy or China on the phone or with e-mail, here's the reason. In many nations of Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa, May 1 is Labour Day, or international workers day.

Alas, as we are not paid-up members of the Comintern, we corporate lawyers here in Korea are strapped to our desks even on May 1 -- we use this day to plot ways to keep the workingman down.
It was a glorious day outside, too. Drat.
