The Holiday everyone forgot

OK, folks, today is Martin Luther King Day and I have been wanderin' 'round the Blogosphere tryin' to find some good stuff about the man and the day to blurb 'bout and I ain't findin' none from anyone: nuthin' from the WASPs, nuthin' from the African-Americans, nuthin' from the Jewish Ideologists, nuthin' from the run-of-the-mill Caucasians, nuthin' from the white trailer trash crackers and nuthin' from the idiotarian asshats. If no one seems to give a whit about rememberin' the man and his mission on this day, why do we have this holiday again?

[UPDATE: It seems that John has figured out the purpose of Martin Luther King Day. It is the day for all ya'll good procrastinators to take down your Christmas decorations. Of course, I am the King of the Procrastinators, 'cause I ain't put mine up yet.]

[UPDATE II: Zombyboy wishes to inform my readership that he did not forget.]

[UPDATE III: "The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important". -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. - a most apropos quote provided by Jennifer.]

So we can have a day off, which is why all good holidays were invented.

Hey, drop by the home of Zomby. I remember the day as something more than merely a day off.

King who? This is California, my friend. We changed the name to Martin Luther Rodriguez day.
