Monday, January 18, is the day we celebrate Martin Luther King’s birthday. Of course, this is not his real birthday. Dr. King was born on January 15, but Congress chose to designate the third Monday in January as the official M.L. King federal holiday.
I think Dr. King deserves his recognition, but I think Elvis does, too. That’s why I proposed Kings Day, the second Monday in January, to honor both Martin Luther King and Elvis, the King of Rock and Roll. Click here to read the blog article where I presented the case for this special day.
Realistically, my idea will never get any traction, but if it did, wouldn’t this picture be great at the top of hundreds of petitions circulating around the country?
