Martin Luther King Day 2017

It’s ironic that on  this MLK Day, with the departure of the first African-American president we are about to witness the inauguration of a man guilty of violating discrimination laws.  It’s been over 50 years since Dr. King gave his “I Have a Dream” speech.  While progress has been made, it’s clear we still have a long way to go.

    I called my congressman’s office today to ask that he consider standing with Rep. Lewis and be a no-show for the inaugural. Maybe, maybe not.

    I saw on the news that there is a dating site for Trump supporters. “Trumpsingles.com” The founder was saying they might do things like go to a gun range for a first date. Hozabout a Klan rally?

    Since none of us are watching, what are you going to do?

    I’m still enjoying my week-long cold or whatever it is. Not going to the March in Phx., hopefully can go out to lunch on Friday, and then watch DVR shows. Bless all of us for the next 2, 4 or how many years to come. It’s nice to have people we can express our wrath with. Thanks BC.
