Small Slugs of Lead Should Not Have This Power over History

January 15, 2005

Today, January 15th, is the actual birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

He was born 76 years ago today. 

More to the point, if it weren’t for that tragic night of April 4, 1968 in Memphis, then Dr. King well might have been with us today.

Somehow, despite hearing every Martin Luther King Day the question "What would Dr. King say about (fill in the blank) if he were alive today?", it never struck me until now that there never has been any fundamental reason this question had to be merely a rhetorical one for my entire life.

Please excuse me now.  I must weep inconsolably.
