People are People

For me, the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday usually means the traffic is lighter than normal. Fortunately other people are on the case. Check out Already Pretty and The Rude Pundit for a couple of timely reads.

And a shout out to the trivia reader who got our team a christmas present of a book of quotes by Dr. King. It's scary how topical and relevant his words remain. I guess it's because people are people. Individually we can range from wonderful to horrendous, but as a mob group, we tend to run the same patterns over and over again and most of those patterns get us into trouble. Which is why stifling dissent is bad, always, and we need the occasional leader who motivates us to be better than we had been.
