MLK Jr

The boys are home from school today, and I'm not expecting to work tonight. I've made it through another round of LJ Idol, which means I get to decide how to write about the topic I Fought the Law.

Reverend Luther believed in the use of civil disobedience to follow a greater truth. As did his namesake from way back when. Both drew spiritual strength from a rather famous follower of this path. Maybe stretching it a bit, but it being MLKJr day, I kind of thought of that as an angle.

Or, I could write about the only time I've been arrested. OOh, kicked out of the state for 18 months! Practically run out of town on a rail.

Or, I could write about the only time I got into trouble in high school. Sentenced to hard labor too -- scrubbing graffiti is no easy task.

Or, I could write about fighting the administration led by our own personal Umbridge back in 2003. This was not a pretty time for any of us.

Or, I could write about no longer being under the law. Hmm. decisions, decisions...

So, yes, it's....

umm, vaguely?

is a tad different from

Typically, gazebos are small structures in gardens. While pagodas can be small, they are often also quite large.

How can you have true freedom from the law?

I was going to vote for

finding out what on earth you did to get run out of town. What are you, a horse thief? HEHE But, I got distracted by shiny.

Ooooh... shiny!
