Isthmus celebrates Martin Luther King Day:

There is still racial discrimination practiced in this country, but there is no longer any doubt that equality among individuals is the law of the land.

The poor sap who wrote this should be sent to Mississippi, where a corrections officer was recently fired for being gay. The ACLU has come to his aid, but there is no federal law protecting gay people from employment discrimination. But of course Mr. Cooley should take heart, because "equality among individuals" is sacrosanct in our country!
