Random thoughts on a holiday

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....

Poll #1125054 Minikin's first Interactive LJ Idol Entry!

Which angle should I take on writing my entry for I Fought the Law ?

Civil disobedience through the centuries
Minikin? Misdemeanor assault on a minor?
Tales of the Unctious Umbridge
True freedom from the law
Shiny Steel Squirrel Shellcrackers
Clicky, clicky, clicky!
Why are you still here when geniuses like gnomeangel have gotten the boot? Take a fall, you poser!

But, I was hoping to see you write about....
