TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A Topeka activist's proposal for a national
holiday to honor Barack Obama's election as president has inspired
plenty of Internet chatter.
Enough chatter to overwhelm The Topeka Capital-Journal's Web site.
Sonny Scroggins says he believes Nov. 4 marks the day the U.S. ``grew up.'' He wants to celebrate the election of the nation's first African-American president.
The Capital-Journal posted a brief story Sunday about a planning meeting that Scroggins scheduled. The Drudge Report took note, and
soon conservative columnist Michelle Malkin was mocking the idea.
By mid-morning Monday, 30,000 people an hour were viewing the
story. The paper says the average top story receives about 5,000
views each day.
