I love how the governour thought it was ok for school to be in session instead of honoring MLK day as per usual. The days school districts had to close after the hurricane should have been excused. The entire state was under a state of emergency which was directed from Christie himself. It wasn't the districts choice to close, it was his. He should have excused them. Instead, he chose to ignore remembering and honoring a hero. He did the same for upcoming presidents weekend. Amazing how he thinks nothing of respecting those national holidays.

Dr. King was a very interesting, though at times conflicted man. He understood that any man-made law that contradicts the laws of nature is no law at all. He also understood that he must be willing to suffer the consequences of ignoring that law, hence the letter from the jailhouse in Birmingham - one of his best pieces of writing. His civil rights goals were noble and correct, though attempting to enlist the feds as bed partners was probably a mistake. He did have some unsavory aspects of his personal life, but we only know about those because the FBI was illegally spying on him for exercising his first amendment right. Calling the government out on the Vietnam War was another great accomplishment and probably the thing that got him shot. We can learn a great deal from the life of MLKJ and we should.
