Happy Martin Luther King, Jr., Day

I am certainly not the first, nor the last, to embed Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech in a blog post on this holiday. Here it is:

Also of note are the sad excuses for rational debate in the comments section of the video. It's you get what you pay for, I guess. (YouTube is free to use, if you didn't get that last statement. Thanks.)

Anyway, if you or I are going to learn something from Dr. King, it's to judge people by content of their character. If you're going to hate somebody - and I don't suggest you do - make sure they are major league A-holes who deserve such contempt, and not by any prejudicial means.
