Who Needs Hope When You Can Have Gloom

Today was the official celebration of the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Many local bloggers, like Mike Mathias, Illusory Tenant and Nick Schweitzer posted tributes to Dr. King and his legacy.

Sykes isn't that insightful. His post is about how today is supposed to be the gloomiest day of the year. He mentions the post holiday let down, the Christmas bills coming due, apathy, and the Packers loss on Sunday. (OK, we'll give him the Packer thing--that did suck.)

Not one word about Dr. King. I guess he feels that equal rights is too much like COEXIST.

Anyway, I have something that would cheer anyone up, even if the thought of civil rights and peaceful coexistence isn't enough.

Today also marks the first day of the last year of the Bush administration. Let us hope that we never get this fooled again.


  1. Lest we forget how much damage one idiot can do in one year. Call it the Bush Squared Theory.

  2. Fed’s Action Stems Sell-Off in World Markets !

    It's the George, Ben and Henry show.

    Hang onto your socks!

  3. I'm glad Sykes and the lot of them have the integrity not to write about Dr. King or even speak his name aloud. Rightly do they fear the thunderbolt.
