3. Always timely no matter how it's said. Remembering Dr. King's Letter

From Birmingham Jail, "Shallow understanding from people of goodwill is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection."

I bet if we look even further back the same thing was said repeatedly through American history. And surprising to see posts on DU about the many, many instances of the so-called problem by the shocked. But just can't Truss It.

So good to see you Number23!
