I choose that week to renew my membership in the NAACP. I also am fond of going to the NY school chili feed. Always a good community event, and good food.

One of the coolest places I've ever visited is the MLK memorial in Atlanta. It is the epitome of serenity & peace. If you ever have the opportunity to go there, don't pass it up. Some personal reflection is what I do on MLK day, then just go about my business.

I am glad to have lived during his lifetime. What a great, great man he was.

I usually reflect on the man's life and accomplishments, but nothing much beyond that.

I love to celebrate civil rights on MLK day. It's a somber year in 2012 though after the recent signing of the NDAA Act.

What is frustrating and sad is when the people in power (say George Soros) take advantage of stupid people (environmentalists/Occupy protesters) to get their way by siding up with them on bogus issues dressed up as phony world citizenship or counterfeit morality (CNN, MSNBC, and most of the mainstream media).

You don't seem to grasp that both sides want to obtain power and control your life... it doesn't matter whether it is left or right. The right uses religion and morality in an attempt to control your life while the left uses extreme environmentalism, false intellectualism, and their own version of morality to control your life while both sides try to side with the common man yet the leaders on both sides are loaded and use every loophole to stay on top (10 of the top 12 wealthiest members of congress are Democrats).

Be pissed BABBOY, but you can't nail only one side for the same thing that both sides are guilty of.

Rara, you can always rent from Avis. They have special models with all that stuff you mentioned. I saw this one driving out of their lot at KCI. It looked a lot like babboy behind the wheel.

So the average male who drinks 2.5 beers in one hour is a binge drinker... damn. That is kind of a light definition.

RA, I also saw Pink Floyd in '77 (best concert year, by far!), and once shook hands with Frank Zappa after sitting front row at a concert.
