i was a teenager when MLK was killed. it was a SHOCK and it came just after RFK was gunned down in los angeles. it was the hot summer of 1968.

today we celebrate his life. i happen to be here at work in Georgetown, the college corner. lots of people buying flowers, purchasing coffee at the gay place across the street and doing yard work. it must be a citywide deal and perhaps the unusual weather has alot to do with it. for if it were a 'normal' winters day we'd be dodging the black ice.
instead, we're listening to shakira and walking around in pull overs.

mr king was a significant leader and today we salute him.
