This is not what Martin Luther King envisioned!$15.95 for this $9.00 for that $6.00 for adults,$3.00 for kids! Are you kidding me?? Read his books, his speeches!!! His change was society changing!! Do more- we, Americans are worth more!!!

And why are some of the schools closing that day?? It would be astoundingly more respectful to Dr. King to have activities for the students to honor him instead of suspending academics for the day. I don't get it.

If you ever want an insightful view into MLK, I recommend FBI 3rd in command, Deke DeLoach's book. In it he chronicles King's licensciousness and preference for socialism / communisim over democracy. The only 2 other individuals to have their birthdays commemorated as federal holidays are Washington and Columbus. You tell me, is MLK worthy of such veneration? He should be admired for his courageous implementation of nonviolence to battle segregation in the mid 50's to 60's. He should be reveiled for his predilictions.

Why do you care anyway... don't you want to be allowed to say what you think? Do you think your opinion should be restricted? Why are you trying to take peoples rights away? Can't you accept we will not all agree all the time?
