Eight years

Eight years ago today we adopted Elwood, oh how time flies. We're both getting progressively more gray, I dare say he makes it look better than I do.

What if they made a sequel to The West Wing, except they get Rob Lowe to play President Sam Seaborn...

A reminder about the true Dr. King (libcom.org)

The King we are being presented is the corporate King, the creature of the white government who used this pacifist myth to beat down the Black freedom movement of the 1960's with blood, and of which he was one of the major casualties, along with Malcolm X, the other major leader of that period. We are fed this garbage every year at this time, which totally circumvents logic and perverts history about Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement itself.

It is done to really remove him from his people, and put him in the hands of the White political establishment, and in that respect that is what has been done. They also want to give us a man they claim who was a sheer pacifist, and could not support the liberation movements which existed all during the revolutionary 1960's. That also was false since we know that Dr. King was opposed to the Vietnam war and reached a pointed where he began to criticize the political institutions of the capitalist government and economy itself. That is why they killed him.

The apostrophe in Hawai'i is important (en.wikipedia.org)

It is called the ‘okina, and it is a consonant in Hawaiian. It represents a glottal stop.

Fascinating to learn!
