MLK Jr. Day

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a national holiday. I noticed this morning that FedEx and UPS are making deliveries here in NYC.

Pam has posted King's "Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam" sermon. It's a powerful speech.

Time has a collection of historic photographs here, including this one of white people reacting to the Brown vs. Board of Education integration ruling (the ruling that the current SCOTUS nearly neutered last year):
