MLK

The radio tells us MLK would have been 85 today.  That means that he would have been about 40 when he was shot.  He did quite a bit before Memphis, but gosh, imagine what MORE he could have done in the last 45 years if racial hatred and gun violence hadn't killed him....

In other, more ordinary Gary news, because I rarely give you my far left humanist point of view, the cow over moon piece shown yesterday was made with a friend, just like Pooh had Piglet....
have an awesome day!

It's good to hear your opinions about civil rights...more than welcome in fact. Your opinions about cute animals and beautiful pottery, well, they're alright too.

I often wonder about this myself. I'm just so glad other people continued the advancement of civil rights after his death. Of course we still have a long way to go.

When I hear how old MLK would have been I realize how much he accomplished in his entirely too short life.

This violence of the gun and bomb is something that is totally beyond my ken.
