Let's check in and see how our usual link-buddies are celebrating the holiday:
From Our pals at OverheardinNY:
The Public Transportation Will Be All Backwards
MC guy: So...you've probably been out hitting the New Year's sales...What's the next holiday to get its own sale? Martin Luther King, Jr. Day? I wonder how they'll promote that sale.
Audience guy: ...Free at last!
--Sidewalk Cafe, Avenue A
Dr. King Must Have Been Dreaming
White guy on cell: Yo, shit nigga, this shit the bomb!
Black guy: If you close your eyes, he almost sounds like the real deal.
--Houston & Varick

And we started MLK a little early with an interesting discussion about race and class in the public schools yesterday.
What are you doing today to celebrate Martin Luther King's legacy?
