I Prefer Pi

Every day this week is a palindrome. Thanks to the US system of ordering dates—sorry, Europeans, you've counted yourselves out of this party—every date in May beginning with a 1 reads the same backwards and forwards in the year 2015, as will happen in June of 2016, July of 2017, etc., allowing us all the pleasure of a week-plus of symmetry topped only, perhaps, by the bonus numerical felicity we did not realize we were experiencing on Pi Day 2013 (3.14.13).
