Martin Luther King Day Music Bytes (and Special Notice)

I am not capable of coming up with anything new or novel to write about Martin Luther King. For many years and through the present, numerous others have been more than adept at capturing the spirit of a man that bettered our nation. In an attempt to present MLK in a few different and musical ways, Lynnrockets will simply provide a few music bytes that were inspired by the man that inspired so many. Please enjoy and try to do something nice for somebody today.

UB40 – “King”

Patty Griffin – “Up To The Mountain”

Kris Kristofferson – “They Killed Him”

Queen – “One Vision”

James Taylor – “Shed A Little Light”

U2 – “Pride (In The Name Of Love)”

You knew I had to throw in an Irish one now didn’t you?


Making a Difference in Anchorage

Alaskans are the people who seem to know Sarah Palin best, and object to her most.  Democrats, Independents, and Republicans are each susceptible to PDS (Palin Derangement Syndrome).  Hope is coming to Alaska.  Malia Litman, blogger at malialitman.wordpress.com and author of The Ignorance Virtues of Sarah Palin: A Humorous Refudiation of the Half-Term Ex-Governor  will be at Borders at 1100 E. Dimond Blvd, Anchorage on Sat. Jan. 22nd at 2:00.  Malia will give a presentation and sign books, guaranteed to provide much needed relief for PDS.  If you are one of the unfortunate Americans afflicted with this disability condition, come to Borders on Saturday.  Together we can find comfort and therapeutic relief for our ailment.  Please join Malia.
