Happy Martin Luther King Day. From my cubicle to your day off.

If you haven't been paying attention to your national media lately, this week is fairly historic. Barack Obama will accept his post at the White House tomorrow morning--the first black President to reign over the United States and the first President to take on such a devestatingly awful economy in many, many moons. Of course, the succession of the inauguration just a day after Martin Luther King Jr. Day has not been missed by American news reports either. Though I'd usually be quick to accuse the media of creating an angle just to cause a sensation, I'm equally impressed by the significance of this calendar coincidence. That Martin Luther King Jr. never lived to see the fruits of his labor is a great shame. But one that we should not overlook. Great thanks to this American hero for paving the way for our next American hero, Barack Obama.

I leave you with this profound holiday message, courtesy of someecards...
