MLK Day

I was not aware that Martin Luther King Jr. had turned his attention to economic rights in his final years.

With the economy taking a downturn and the government saddled with Bush’s war bill, the president makes a point to warn congress that it had better extend tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans. Will we honor King today by considering the ideas he was fighting for when he died, or ignoring them?

Not entirely unrelated:

Boondocks "Return of the King" tonight at midnight on Cartoon Network. HIGHLY recommended.
