The Meaning of Barack To Me...

Yesterday was Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday He would have been 80 years old. In his famous speech " I've Been to the Mountaintop" he says, " I may not get there with you, but I have seen the promised land." The symbolism should not be lost on anyone that today the first black president was sworn into office. He might have seen the promised land but did he ever imagine, that if his life had not been taken from him perhaps he might have actually seen it?

OK....enough with the deep stuff it makes me weep.
There was a list of top money making couples I saw recently on television. One of those lists that fills my brain with enough silly information that allows me to write horrible things about celebrities and not feel bad about it because they are usually excruciatingly beautiful and rich. The top 2 highest paid celebrity couples were:
2. Jada and Will Smith.
1. Jay-Z and Beyonce.
I know it seems a strange comparison but I think MLK would be proud of that too.
