eight hits to defeat Dr. Robotnik

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

There wasn't any proper celebration, but what does one do to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day? Even the internet doesn't have an answer, although a number of college campuses hosted speakers. Dan thought of having a barbecue, which would have worked fine since it's not really winter this January and he doesn't have room for a symposium at his house.

Ideas for next year, or a belated celebration tomorrow:
-black and white cookies
-short of clip of the "I have a dream" speech, unless everyone has seen it enough times that they're bored stiff of it
-listening to two tone, i. e. The Specials with all their checkerboards and racial unity
-listening to other music which shares ideas and themes between cultures, i. e. the British band Adam and Ants, featuring guitarist Marco Pirroni who consciously imitates the guitar of Ennio Morricone, an Italian who composed music for movies set in the Old West
-wait, isn't a potluck better than a barbecue? A potluck where people bring ethnic dishes from their own cultural background, or others. Or just food, because everything comes from somewhere.
-ceremonial doing of logic puzzles and Rubiks cubes
-spoons (a card game), accompanied by some drivel I will invent about the colors on the playing cards, and the shapes, and celebrating differences...

...this is soon to become silly, and I didn't actually mean it to be, so I'll stop there. A few good ideas, ok.
