    Agreed. I think he would be very disappointed at how some things have worked out these days though. I do get the day off, for the first time ever. What the hell is there to do on a cold Monday?

    We get the day off too, but like a lot of other commemorative holidays, I fear we forget to honor the person for which it has been established. I'll try to do better this year. Perhaps a donation to United Negro College Fund or something like that.

    We celebrate a day when we went from forced segregation to self imposed segregation. There have been gains but so many are left behind in the hoods and projects.:(

    What is that? bye?

    What's going on?

    Yeah, 'cause the United Negro College Fund really bases its meritorious awarding of scholarships on the content of character and not the color of skin, right? Try starting up the United Anglo College Fund and see how that goes over.

    I think MLK would be sickened by what he'd see as the mantle of civil rights these days...

    I sure hope BB doesn't chime in to say this is some political thread, then quote some goofball Ursula K. LeGuin nonsense.

    Hmmm ... where's the Moderator?

    Just as a check, to my view this thread topic is inherently political. Who makes the call on that? It might well get more action if moved to the Wack section.

    Yeah, and it's got a Hemi. I think you've just been Fandangoed. Not sure what Sean's gonna call it.

    I think Fandangoed is as good a term as any to describe being zinged by you. Before you thought that gem up I was thinking of 'Bulbed', 'Edisoned', etc.

    "Brokebacked" is the term you are searching for.

    You guys have totally hijacked a thread about MLK. And on his day too. For shame. Tomorrows OK.

    There might not be world peace yet (OK were not even close) but I think we have come a long way since since he was marching the streets. He wasn't even asking for world peace he was asking for equal rights and he got the job done. Right now there is a black man running for president. Unfortunatly it took his assasination to finish the job. Moments like that prove that people can be more violent and evil than any animal. Animals only kill for food or to keep from being eaten, not for personal reasons. But for every bad person there's also a good one. Yup, I think he was a great man.
