Well said, sir, well said.

I'm like you... today is another work day. I'll admit that it's kind of nice to flog the word processor without the phone ringing constantly. Maybe I can get ahead a little bit. For that, I'm thankful. And maybe I'll go out and watch the parade when it goes by the office.

The title "Dr." King is a bit of a misnomer as he plagiarized his doctoral thesis, along with much of his scholarly and civil rights work.

My first knowledge of Martin Luther KIng was when he was asassinated. I was five years old and I thought our King had died!

Of course, I learned later that what I remembered was MLK's departure from this old world.

It was in January or April of '83 that I heard a non-stop presentation of his speeches on a local college radio station. It was his near-embodiment of honey rather than vinegar that made me a huge fan right then. He knew, and I learned, that people will listen if they don't feel like they're being assaulted -- even if they know they're wrong.

MLK did more for civil rights in a few short years than Jesse Jackson can ever do in all of his decades. Jackson can wail like a preacher with the best of 'em, but his rhetoric often rings shallow, not universal.

Martin Luther King forgot more than Jesse Jackson will ever know about how to inspire us to our best possible future.

Lies. MLK would be resisting Bush most certainly. Any who claim he would bless Bush's butchery are delusional or liars.
