Like many people, I reread MLK’s ‘I have a dream’ on MLK Day. But today I also reread the Letter from Birmingham Jail. Here is hoping all of you have a peaceful and lovely MLK day. As far as I can tell, things are pretty hopping and jolly down on the Mall here in DC; it seems like a lot of cars and buses have parked up on American University campus in order to take the Metro bus downtown. But all is very quiet out here on the edges of DC in Spring Valley. I don’t have the stamina to deal with either the crowds or the cold on the Mall and am just hanging out at home. The semester is finally beginning for real in the last half of this week, or at least that’s how it seems. Everyone have a good holiday.
