With all the ugliness going on over in the South Carolina, I had considered posting about how much uglier it may get over the next months. However, I'll save that for another day.
We tried to explain to Toddler Supercomputer just exactly what "Martin Luther King Day" means. We told her it was a day we marched down the street. We told her it was a day about a real nice guy. We told her it was a day about a man who told us to be nice to one another.
That's the best we could do. Better to go to the source. And for now, lock away the pessimistic part of our brain.
