MLK, Jr. Day

Please take a couple of moments and reflect where we have come from, where we are, and where we need to go. Whether you have today off or not, whether you live in the U.S.A. or not, we should all work towards his dream. Thanks.

Good Call. We've come a long way, baby, but it's come at a steep price for many.

But I must say that the changes have come faster than I'd expect if I look back in to history. I'm proud of us as a nation to come from the point from MLK's speech and assassination to an African American president in roughly 40 years.

That doesn't mean it's "over", but we have come a long, long way as a nation. I think MLK would be proud.
