Praise to the man

MLK day. Not just a day off of work. At the Yerba Buena Gardens in SF, there's a section that acts as a tribute to him. Panels of his words underneath a waterfall. Some of them blew me away. I had never really read anything but the I have a dream speech. The ammount of vision he had at that time. Very inspiring stuff. I hope we can all dig around a bit to read some of his words this week. As I was digging around, it got a bit depressing that several web addresses bearing his name led to porn sites or even racist sites. May I suggest this one as a great spot to do some reading.

Sure, If you click on the image it gets bigger and is easier to read. It says

"We must rapidly begin to shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When Machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.
