Happy MLK Monday

I was very small, but I remember the man fairly clearly. I recall that his message seemed universal. Many try to claim his legacy to beat their foes over the head with it. I'm not interested.

It is useful to reflect where that man came from, and what was the driving force that informed his crusade. And while he succumbed to the temptations that notoriety brings, such things are extraneous details. He was just a man, after all. It was his message that was divine.

Don't bother yourselves with those who try to pull such a man like taffy, trying to fashion a coat of his skin to hide their predations. Listen to the man. I did, and was convinced.
