Remembering Dr. King as well as an ugly reminder of the lions at our City's gate...


Once again, it's the third Monday of January, the day we celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  There's plenty of places on the internet that do a better job of honoring the man than we possibly can, considering the state our nation finds itself in today, I think this quote from one of Mr. King's speeches is most appropriate...
“the question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be. Will we be extremists for hate or for love? Will we be extremists for the preservation of injustice or for the extension of justice?”

Consider that quote next time you see something wrong going on around you and decide not to do anything about it, perhaps something like what I found littered all over the streets this past weekend...

The pro casino groups were out in full force this weekend plastering Little Havana with this kind of bullshit.  With the kind of money they're putting into swaying the public opinion on getting gambling into our region, is there any doubt that they'll succeed?  Considering the level of voter apathy in South Florida, unless something drastic happens, this is as close to a sure thing as you can get.
