Tomorrow (August 28) is the anniversary of Martin Luther King's famous I Have a Dream speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. It was a defining and high-water moment for the civil rights movement and one of the greatest speeches in American history. Please take a few minutes to watch (and/or read) King's famous speech. It's a great reminder of the better angels in each of us.

It was on this day in 1718 that Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville, founded a city he named La Nouvelle Orléans, after then-Regent of France Philippe d'Orléans. New Orleans went on to bring us not only jazz—that most American style of music—but also such literary figures as John Kennedy Toole, Truman Capote, Anne Rice, and adopted son Tennessee Williams (who was actually born in Mississippi). Pick up a book by one of these writers and savor the rich culture of New Orleans as the city turns 292.
