Morning, folks. No rants or pontification from me on this national holiday.
It's both ironic and historic that it falls on the day before a black man is sworn in as President of the United States.
My only hope on this day is that, setting traditional politics and partisanship aside - because you don't have to belong to any particular faction to appreciate the historical significance, America can make even more progress than it already has in responding to King's exhortation to judge folks by the content of the character, rather than the color of their skin (or any other superficial characteristic over which they have no control).
Out of respect for the holiday, this is all I have to say on the matter till after Tuesday's inauguration. Just remember my exhortation to set aside traditional politics and partisanship.
