Hurricane Irene has put the kibosh on my trip to DC. So I’ll monitor events on Twitter and Facebook.
The official Dedication Ceremony for the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial has been postponed to September or October.
As of this writing, Al Sharpton’s march and rally, “From the Emancipator to the Liberator,” is scheduled to go on “rain or shine” on Saturday.
Perhaps it’s time to batten down the hatches.

It’s hot in Philly. I’m not complaining; it’s a statement of fact. And the fact is, I’m a cold weather person who’s headed to the even muggier DC.
In the coming days and weeks, I will remind you to get on the bus for the August 27 march and rally for jobs and justice.
But right now, there’s a heatwave and it's tearing me apart.
