The Mountaintop, April 3, 1968

Given in support of striking Sanitation Workers in Memphis, Tennessee. Thank you very kindly, my friends. As I listened to Ralph Abernathy and his eloquent and generous introduction and then thought about myself, I wondered who he was talking about. It’s always good to have your closest friend and associate to say something good about …

August 28, 1963

I have a dream I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Letter From Birmingham Jail

I won’t bother blockquoting. ek hornbeck MY DEAR FELLOW CLERGYMEN: While confined here in the Birmingham city …

More Long Format Retro Weekend. I won’t pretend the Smothers Brothers was a formative experience because I was already 60ish when TV rolled around (still miss The Shadow– “The weed of Crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay.

DNA Discounts

AeroMexico is offering DNA Discounts on tickets to Mexico which is a fascinating and beautiful place I would gladly visit if it weren’t so damn hot most of the year (which is not to say I’m looking forward to the 16 Degree Cold Snap predicted for Monday in Stars Hollow). As an acolyte of Clio …

Welcome to Long Format Retro Weekend. Up first is the movie that explains what the Beatles, simply the most influential band ever (well, until Wyld Stallyns came along), were like. Be excellent to each other. Party on dudes! A Hard Day’s Night

Who Is Yoni Appelbaum?

Well, Yoni Appelbaum is a senior editor at The Atlantic, where he oversees the Ideas section. This is going to be their lead piece in the March 2019 Edition.
