America is currently buried knee-deep in the muck of the 'Impeachment' trial on the floor of the U.S. Senate. The next item of business after President Trump's defense team makes their case will be debate and a consideration of whether or not to allow witnesses. The inevitable and tedious demands of the Democrats for witnesses should be rejected outright by the Republican majority. Moreover, they shouldn't even consider continuing after that point.
January 20, 2020, was the official recognition holiday of the life of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It is intended to be a time of remembrance and celebration of a life courageously given to make a simple but monumentally profound dream into a reality. However, MLK Day should not stop with a moment or two of reflection, though the reflection is appropriate. As noted in this journal previously, King was a childhood idol of mine, and I was crushed when he was assassinated in 1968, less than five years after he gave voice to his righteous dream in the nation's capital. Rev. King's most famous speech is known as the "I have a dream" address on August 28, 1963, in front of 250,000 people in Washington D.C. at the official end of the "March on Washington."
