Remembering Dr. King

One year, when I was still working at HP, the personnel people decided to make Martin Luther King Jr. Day a company holiday in place of Good Friday. My comment was, "I wonder what Dr. King would have thought about that."

Anyway, I'm taking the day off from my current employer NetApp (a great place to work, by the way) and decided to look at one of Dr. King's speeches. I got kinda choked up listening to it. A 3-minute excerpt is here. There are some subtitles in... Dutch?

More here.

Requiring less in the way of Kleenex® but more in the way of time, is his letter from Birmingham jail, here.
