Out of the Fire, A Dream

Today is Wednesday, 4 April 2007.

Here's the addendum to the placehold noted below.

On this day in 1968, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered.

Changed my life forever.

So, ain’t that a caution: on this date, one year ago, thanks to my lifelong friend, whose name is very close to, but not, The Rand Corporation, who built me a blogsite, this column debuted.

All honour and glory to Dr. King, and to millions of African Americans who were lynched and viciously treated in the ordinary ways of daily life.

Herewith, I Have a Dream:

“Let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream”.

This column is a place-holder. Today is 6 April. HH has had some bad arthritis problems. This weekend, HH will fill in.

By the by, 6 April is date of accidental discovery of TEFLON in 1938, which was first used to coat valves in the processes creating fissile materials for the first atomic bombs, at Oak Ridge, TN. And thence, to our skillets.

Out of the fire, into the frying pan.
