Who do we have to blame for this extra day? Caesar, the originator of self-portrait coins, the King of Diamonds, salad dressing, and leap year:
This being February 29 — Leap Day — today is costing you an extra day’s interest if you’re repaying a debt. On the bright side, its earning you a tiny bit more on your bank deposits.
Whom do we have to thank — or curse — for this extra day every four years? Julius Caesar and his lover, Cleopatra.
