From the Archives: Vacations Are Necessary For Us, But Not Mandated By Law

Editor’s Note: I am taking some time away from the office. In my absence, I thought I would revisit one of my older posts talking about….vacation.   Like many of you, I long for vacations.

And while that private tour my Facebook friend recommended sounds neat and all, what can we really afford to do? Havi...
