HAVE A HAPPY WEEKEND

Martin Luther King, Jr. was a great man and it makes me proud that America could produce such a fantastic human being.

In a lot of ways, he reminds me of myself.

Have a good one, everybody.

Hmmm. Other than the obvious physical resemblance, I don't really see it.

Through our scientific and technological genius, we have made of this world a neighborhood and yet we have not had the ethical commitment to make of it a brotherhood. But somehow, and in some way, we have got to do this. We must all learn to live together as brothers or we will all perish together as fools. We are tied together in the single garment of destiny, caught in an inescapable network of mutuality. And whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the way God’s universe is made; this is the way it is structured. - "Remaining Awake Through A Great Revolution". 1968.

Koopa, that's a good quote. Thanks.

Quite welcome. I saw it over on my favorite mp3 blog, soul-sides.com and thought it was pretty awesome. I'd never read it before either.

And, in case anybody cares, I've decided to scrap my Frey-Sampling post. It's pointless really, and with my Colts losing, I just don't care anymore. Keep sharp objects away from me.
