I recieved this email from a friend today, and this made me stop and think a bit.
My friend brings up a good point on MLK day.

"My trash was collected today...which I thought was odd since today was a federal holiday.
I'm pretty sure that trash is not collected on most federal holidays (but I could be wrong, maybe they collect on Veteran's Day, etc). That made me go "hmmmm....."
I thought that it was incredibly ironic, however, that the memory of a man who was assassinated while trying to bring attention to the plight of striking trash collectors in Memphis is not honored by the trash collectors! You'd think that they'd rally behind this holiday....go figure.
Best,Bill "
