Yep, Happy Martin Luther King Day everybody! So good to know the man finally got the national recognition he's deserved all along. It's also good to know that not everything around town is closed today, so I could take care of important business as needed. I jokingly told this one lady at the doctor's office just a little while ago that I'm pretty sure Martin didn't take the day off on his own birthday, putting the cause of Civil Rights on the back-burner back then, when that particular cause was of paramount importance.
Anyway, I don't know if Martin would be overly pleased to see what's going on in our society these days, but he'd have to admit that we have at least made some progress over the years. Hell, we've made quite a bit of progress, actually! Can't expect everything to be the picture of perfection. All in all, though, I'm sure he'd say something like, "We've come a mighty long way from the way things used to be... But we still have a mighty long way to go."
