Odd thoughts sometimes happen while you're walking...

After watching Barack Obama's inauguration on TV last week I went out for a stroll along the Martin Luther King Promenade in the Marina District in Downtown San Diego.The MLK Promenade is a concrete walkway running parallel to Harbor Drive from the Gaslamp Fountain to Columbia St. It is adorned with stone tablets quoting MLK's various speeches. Most are in good shape.... except for this one. I suppose the folks calling for the persecution of George W Bush and others responsible for war crimes and illegal wire-tapping of US citizens are right. We'd all like to just concentrate on fixing the economy and getting the military out of Iraq and Afghanistan. But... there are certain crimes that won't let us have a clean new beginning while they remain unfixed.
