Strange Twists to the Dr. King Holiday

  • Last week Carolyn was teaching her kindergarten students about Martin Luther King, Jr.  When she explained that Monday was a holiday to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. King, one little boy asked: “Does that mean that all the black children don’t have to come to school that day?”
  • Carolyn and I were talking earlier about how we went to a store last year that was having their big “White Sale”… on the Dr. King holiday.  We figured it had to be a strange coincidence.  We went to the same store yesterday and–sure enough–they were once again having their White Sale.  Surely that’s not a sick joke?  But it would be an awfully strange coincidence.  Think I’ll ask their manager.

  1. Man, you KNOW I’m really interested in hearing what that manager says!! 😉

  2. We went back there a couple days ago and the sale was still going on. So at least it’s not just on that one day, though it’s still pretty weird timing.
