Rev King should be appreciated even more given the present condition of our country and the misuse of power in D.C. by those in power

A year ago, President Obama observed: "[I]t turns out our Founders designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change that I would like sometimes." Back then, facing re-election, he promised to be patient. Today, he is impatient--with the opposition, and the system itself. He will destroy both, if necessary, to achieve his vision of America--one where "government alone" does not do everything, but rather dictates to individuals what they should do, and choose, and want, to serve its sweeping designs

Why didn't the city celebrate Lee/Jackson day? I guess those two weren't black! This is our history and trying rewrite it won't change it. I celebrate Lee/Jackson day and am proud to do so. I celebrate MLK day for other reasons.
