To honor this occasion, President Obama will be joined Wednesday, August 28th, by President Jimmy Carter and President Bill Clinton, members of the King family and other civil rights leaders and luminaries at the Let Freedom Ring Commemoration and Call to Action event at the Lincoln Memorial, to commemorate Dr. King’s soaring speech and the 1963 March on Washington.

… This event is open to the public. Doors open at 9:00 AM, for an 11:00 AM program start on Wednesday, August 28th at the Lincoln Memorial. Guests arriving after 12:00 PM are not guaranteed admittance.  In order to access the venue, you must enter from the east side of the Reflecting Pool, on 17th street, near the World War II Memorial.

Morning/afternoon everyone, enooooooormous thanks again to the legend that is UT for all her completely wonderful work the last few days. I’m in the same middle-of-nowhere spot as last year, enjoying the rain – :???: – so wasn’t able to be around while traveling and trying to sort out an internet connection. Still struggling on that front, I have a moody dongle thingie that only started working occasionally from this morning, but I should have a new gadget later today that will sort things out. So, I had to abandon today’s R&S efforts because the connection kept dropping, leading to me using exceedingly bad language.

Normal-ish service will – hopefully – be resumed later.

Endless thanks again to UT!
