Celebrating

It’s Martin Luther King Day, although his actual birthday was Saturday.  Three-day weekends are nice, but it’s hard not to feel that a person’s actual birthday is more important.  In honor of Dr. King, you can read his Letter from Birmingham Jail in its entirety.

It is, in fact, the actual birthday of our incomparable First Lady, Michelle Obama.  She celebrates her 47th today – many happy returns.

  1. Thanks a mil for the Letter from Birmingham. I learned so much that I d on’t think I’ll forget. Might even reread it before nightfall.

    Should I grow up to be a great mover and shaker I hope I don’t need to be in jail to write something as profound.
