Good morning, Netizens...

Today is Martin Luther King Day, and it seems somehow fit and proper that we should carefully and meticulously consider what David Horsey has to say on the issue this morning about the parallels between Dr. King and President-Elect Barack Obama.

They are not the same and yet similar in how they have trod the path of life. However, before we begin casting Obama as the living embodiment of Dr. King, perhaps we should wait and see what he actually does as President, should we not? Optimism, yet caution, appears to be what David Horsey is suggesting should be our course with his cartoon this morning.

Moreover, while we stand on the precipice of what is to be a historical time in history, and Lord knows we need all the impetuous optimism and hope we can muster in these tough times, we should be fully cognizant of the tremendous sacrifices, including those by Dr. Martin Luther King, that have allowed us to stand here today.
