MLK Day: The Dream Deferred

I am sort of befoozled as to the logic of the administration at Seabury. While it is Martin Luther King day and classes were supposedly cancelled in his honor, that is not exactly what has happened. The classes were only moved to Friday afternoon and not in fact cancelled.

I guess it is truly ironic that we only pretend to have an off day by deferring classes in rememberance of civil rights at an institution which pretends to be diverse. I think that's pretty telling of priorities, but I guess it is a start. The Pelagians across the street did not even take the day off.

The Pelagians? Or is that an in-joke that I don't get since I'm in Kentucky?

Ryan. Episcopalians hate black people. Haven't you been paying attention?
