MLK Speech

For me personally, Martin Luther King’s most important speech wasn’t the I Have a Dream Speech. Nor was it the letter from a Birmingham jail.

It was this 1967 speech, the deliverance of which really ticked off Lyndon Johnson and not a few black leaders as well. I didn’t hear it until after he died the following year, but it turned out to become massively important in my life.
A 2005 sermon appropriate for the day.

“Hey! You in the bushes! Come on out!”

Apparently it’s National De-Lurking Week. Who knew? Well, Greg did, but he knows all sorts of obscure crap.

Quoting him: “If you don’t know, a lurker is someone who visits blogs without ever commenting on it. So if you’re stopping by, say hello. Leave a comment and tell me I’m an idiot. Tell me I’m a genius. Whatever. If you have left comments before, do it again. What will it cost you? I would do it at your blog! Really, I would!” And I WOULD.
