18. Wow! Mahalo for that backstory.. I remember when McCain was a holdout for not celebrating

MLK Day in Arizona.. looking it up.. it was in 1983 and I was living in San Diego, CA.

Such an ignorant man.. and he really hasn't gotten any better.. look at the company he kept with the vote against the Holiday for MLK..

The six who cast votes against the national holiday are all Republicans: Sens. Richard Shelby (Ala.), Chuck Grassley (Iowa), John McCain (Ariz.) and Orrin Hatch (Utah), as well as Reps. Jim Sensenbrenner (Wis.) and Hal Rogers (Ky.). Shelby cast his vote as a Democrat, before he switched parties.

Definitely we should have a National Holiday for Voting.. like Australia! Dr King would have loved that. That will happen when Dems go out to Vote in Midterms and we get a Dem Majority in Both Houses.

"Not many people can say a song they wrote helped a nation declare a national holiday - the great Stevie Wonder is one of them."
