Dr. King's Day

It's the day we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. If you are one of the lucky few who got to stay home for that celebration, I salute you. And your employer. And, perhaps, your union.

If you're into staying up on television and film news, here are the results from last night's Golden Globe awards, which are given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for excellence in TV and cinema, both domestic and international. Think of them as a sneak preview for the Oscars and Emmys.



A lie cannot live.

A man can't ride your back unless it's bent.

A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.

A riot is, at bottom, the language of the unheard.

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.

Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the world better.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
