Anybody here seen my old friend Martin? Can you tell me where he's gone. He freed a lot of people but it seems the good they die young. I just turned around and he's gone.

carlthedad, WOW! The world you see is an outward picture of your inward condition. Let he who has no sin throw the first stone. It is called projection or better, a holier than thou awareness. I do not despise you sir. Blessings and thank you.

He was the right man, at the right time, with the right message (from God, I'd suspect)

Nothing I did not know. They always leave out he was a womanizer, adulterer, who love sex with white women. Was despised by every Democrat in U.S. Congress in the 60's.

Having a holiday named for him is a National honor. When Illinois adopted King Day they also declared a (Casmir) Pulaski day. It is a longer story than I want to spend time doing here.
