M. L. King's Birthday & Discomforting Truth

       He was one of the truly great Americans of the 20th century, a champion of the power of non-violence and civil disobedience. It is fitting that his words be restated as they apply in our current society.
     The difference between always and "almost always" is vast! Over the last 30-40 years a "creative dedicated minority" has given us the current gross inequality of treatment by the government at all levels between the privileged few and the majority and the resulting unprecedented chasm in income, wealth and power between the same few and "the people" as a whole in the USA.
