King Daze (January 20, 2014)

. . .

A          “King’s birthday has become a day for some people to undertake very visible and well publicized ‘public interest’ activities.  A day on not a day off.”

B          “The activities are advertised and publicized the way the Soviets announced spending on consumer goods.  Make a big announcement before spending money, make a big announcement while spending money, and make a big announcement after spending money.” 

A          “I am more interested in how one leads his or her life yesterday and tomorrow.”

. . .

A          “Lawyers also undertake very visible and well publicized pro bono publico activities.”

B          “Secular redemption for activities undertaken during the rest of the week.  I am more interested in what they do on all of their days off not on their day on.”

. . .

A          “Doing something if desirable.  The Civil War did not end at Appomattox, they just called a truce, changed the uniforms from gray fatigues to white sheets, and privatized the terrorism.  Celebrating King’s birthday is part of the long road and the slow process to end America’s enduring Civil War.”

B          “We still have a long way to go.  Virginia still celebrates Ku Klux Klan Day.”
