MLK

Spoke with some of my students the other day about the significance of Martin Luther King and his sacrifice for social injustice and so on. I asked what they thought about him and if they thought his death was meaningful. They said they could care less about him and that he was an idiot for getting shot. These are inner city African American's saying this. I was a bit shocked to say the least.

Well, I appreciate the day off anyway.

In other news, the website Pandora.com has awesome streaming audio. Check it out.
