In Memory: King and Rosa

Today is Tuesday, 15 January 2008.

On this date in 1929, Martin Luther King, Jr. was born.

On this date in 1973, American terror bombing of Vietnam theoretically ended.

On this date in 1919, your author’s favourite Marxist, the great activist and theoretician, Rosa Luxembourg, was assassinated in Berlin.

The bronchitis recovery continues to run rampant in the HH family, and the cocker is back home, way cranky cause she has to be in a kennel cage in the family room, while her aged leg reheals, and HH spent the night on dog pillows next to the cage, holding her paw.

And let’s not even get into 3.30am this morning, when everyone woke up simultaneously, HH last of all, and demanded breakfasts (dog food, cat food, oatmeal for Mrs. HH).

However … we’re all still alive, we can make slight differences, soon enough our entire civilization will be dust.

But, we will still recall the immortal Piaf:
