It Is Truly Difficult Facing The Truly Crucial Issues Of Our Minds?

Jan. 15, 1929, Martin Luther King, Jr., the second of three children of 
the Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. and Alberta Williams King, 
was born at the family home on 501 Auburn Avenue. 
It has been hard for me to follow the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. essay. After the first day, or so, unable to tackle something into shape, I consoled myself thinking whatever I got right about our American observance of Dr. King's holiday, should remain front and center. If only because at least I can recognize how valuable a fully celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday would be. 
Meanwhile entertainment news doesn't lack for sarcastically amusing anecdotes. Fox News and Sarah Palin Part Ways in the The New York Times of all places to stoop to blatantly trivial political gossip. Careers are on the line in Ms. Palin's wake, and issues pound in a heavy drumbeat, but seriously, whether, or not, politicians can fund their celebrity careers is nowhere as significant as what our collective consciences could become if we'd only fully celebrate the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday. 

Today, Friday, REUTERS reported Court declares Obama's recess appointments invalid. Important, yes. But as culturally significant as how we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

There are, in fact, huge issues facing the world as this past Tuesday, The New York Times OP-ED COLUMNIST,  wrote in Break All the Rules, advice for the upcoming new United States Secretary of State, John Forbes KerryMr. Friedman wrote - I'd suggest trying something radically new, and Let's break all the rules. 

The Flat Guy goes on to re-advocate a new diplomacy where the world communicates Social Medially through the powers that be that then have no choice but to truly represent the good peoples' interests. President Putin and everyone will no longer be able to just declare immunity and hide behind a wave and a smile. Or perennial anger of the Middle East. 

And while still not as important as honoring the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, since I've seen no mention that John Kerry's appointment and expected confirmation might put the tragic Vietnam schism in American Culture behind us, I'll bring it up. Sure, in every few Bars they'll yell at their screens, their own news, that John Kerry hung out with Hanoi Jane. But, all in all, symbolically Vietnam's tragedy has to be made into a  growing pain, not forgotten, but behind us.

Russia has their own meat and potato patriotic issues. An RT headline, Tuesday, Russian test for migrants ‘not discriminatory’ – Medvedev makes perfect sense if power remains with the powerful as has been the world-wide case for centuries. 

So to conclude on two cute notes, remember the chant? "Four more years. Four more years. ... " Well, The Huffington Post, Tuesday reported, Mitch McConnell On Obama Inauguration Speech: 'The Era Of Liberalism Is BackSoapbox View We'll never get enough of their convenient political game where public opinion is the ping pong ball.

And finally, was everyone in suspense over  The New York Times report yesterday that Pentagon Clears Commander Over E-Mails With Socialite? Hopefully not so much that you felt the significance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday any less!
