Of course you didn’t forget that today is Edward Albee Day in New York City, did you? After all, as you surely recall, the genius playwright’s 80th birthday has been declared Edward Albee Day by Mayor Bloomberg. We assume you’re not even at work.

Or perhaps you’d like to respond to your burgeoning sex scandal? On Edward Albee Day, let’s just be glad that Eliot Spitzer only slept with hookers and didn’t fall in love with something hairier.
