Figures the powerful skateboard lobby would use their muscle to snag the longest day of the year for Go Skateboarding Day.

Unfortunately, many of them were out skateboarding and don't tell those of us in ivory towers what's happing down at the half pipe.

What's happening is today is the day that we all celebrate this truly southern California fad sport lifestyle, so important we had to mention it twice.

Not only is skateboarding not a crime, but Go Skateboarding Day should be a holiday. Once we all get universal health care, of course.
