Today is the Anniversary of Martin Luther King's 1963 "I HAVE A DREAM" speech-
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men re crated equal-
I have a dream today.
That my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.
This an historic night.

DENVER — Mindful of the pitfalls of hosting cocktail parties while Gulf Coast residents are being evacuated, John McCain’s campaign suggested Thursday that Republicans could postpone their upcoming national convention in St. Paul if Tropical Storm Gustav makes landfall over the weekend.
Well, they may be screwed for a while then. After Gustav hits, Hana is scheduled to hit Florida, and then there are 2 more tropical waves with good circulation coming across the Atlantic that are expected to develop into hurricanes. I suppose they'll simply postpone until October, or is it ok to sipn champagne and pop balloons while a hurricane hits the East coast??

We remember you Martin, and congratulations to Barack Obama, and to America!

Friday Morning Update: I was typing McCain's name and didn't cap it so it came out mccain. Spellcheck (which always knows the real truth) didn't like that, and suggested alternate spellings of "cocaine" and "Novocaine".
America, we may have a problem...
