The young lady on the right, have we seen her in Working Daze before? I like her dress, and although it looks good on her, I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing that dress.
Nice strip in honor of a great man.
Thank you, Tom
Now that election season is here let’s get on with the judging of the content of people’s characters.
The concept of Monday holidays came into being in 1971 when Washington’s Birthday, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, and Veterans Day were all moved to Mondays. Yes, it was done to create three-day weekends for federal employees. And, as I work for the USPS, I’m not complaining. Believe me, having that little day off so soon after the Christmas crunch is nice.
When Martin Luther King Day was established in 1983, it was added to the list. A lot of school districts use it for semester break.
And, in 1978, it was decided to move Veterans Day back to November 11. Originally it was Armistice Day, honoring veterans of World War I, but it was changed to honor all veterans.

speculate he will be disappointed with our society. income inequality. disparity of education levels and occupations. that we are more self-absorbed and constantly on our devices. he would lament the failures. that BET is horrible and a detriment to society. that we have not resolve any of the structural societal issues.
I wonder how proud he’d be of all the violence and black-on-black crime?
Yes we still have a ways to go. I still insist we have come a long way in a short amount of time. I remember being caught in a race riot at my high school. Horrible, my first (but not last) whiff of tear gas. I remember Federal troops being called out to force integration. We have come a long way since then. I remember Gov Wallace openly opposing integration on the school steps. Yes we have come a long way. It is just sad though that so many blacks who are being looked up to offer quick, sometimes illegal, shortcuts out of financial quagmire of low or no wages. Look at the gains we have made, vow not to make the same mistakes again, and keep pushing for a better life for all, despite race or religion.
