Why Do My Best Stories Happen at Speedway?

I had to go to Speedway for some gasoline. While I was at it, I went inside and bought some Krispy Kremes and a frozen coke because I drown my sorrows in junk food--yay, for familial dysfunction! So I'm standing in line and there is a lady at the counter, a very attractive lady with a smoking body who appeared to be wearing a light sweater over black leggings.

Dr. King, Deconstructed

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

Today on Martin Luther King Day, I cannot reflect on the hardships people have faced in the faded, dim recollection of the past. I cannot recall the images of hoses and dogs and hatred.
