Default Martin Luther King Day...

Tommorrow is Martin Luther King Jr. Day and I thought I'd post a brief reminder to take time and educate yourself on the man and his message. Personally, he is by far my favorite historical figure, and the greatest American of the 20th century. Also take note of how his message still needs to be heard, as a few southern states ( namely Virgina and South Carolina) will protest the day in their state capitals and celebrate their own recently new holiday, Confederates Day, which honors ( if you can honor scum) like Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee. Passed by state legislatures in THIS DECADE, these acts remind us of how far SOME people have yet to go in this nation.

It's also a good day to find a way to send a message to former Senator Jesse Helms from North Carolina. The racist, AIDS patient hater who said all Latinos were 'violent people' was the main opposition to the day being observed nationally. Drop the racist a line and tell him he lost... ...Ignorant S.O.B.
