After yesterday's Atlanta speech to the leadership of NAPA (a very down-to-earth, energetic, and enjoyable group), and before I headed to the airport, I stopped for a few moments at the King Center to pay my respects to Coretta Scott King. I came of age at the same time the Civil Rights movement did; in fact, one of my Cornell classmates was murdered in Philadelphia, Mississippi. At any rate, it was quite stirring to see both Kings, about 20 yards apart, at the Center. And about 100 yards from the Kings is the same simple neon sign that's been around for ages: Ebenezer Baptist Church. The epicenter!

Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
