MLK Day Again!

Today, I worked.

But I saw something interesting today. A lot of people didn’t come to work. I base this on the mostly empty park and ride lots my bus zoomed past into Lynnwood. This wasn’t the pattern only just last year. Maybe people felt, on the verge of promoting a new president, an African American president, that today meant a little more than it did in years past.

Anyway, here’s a King quote, I’d like to comment on: Though the arc of the universe is long, it bends toward justice.

I appreciate the idea that King was trying to make here but, as an absurdist, here’s how I’d amend that to still carry the idea across while removing the idea that there is grand meaning to the universe: Though the arc of the universe is long, we must work to bend it towards justice.
