Re: “The Real Martin Luther King Jr.

Great piece Jay. I often wonder how Dr. King would respond to the current state of society, and what actions he would be advocating. I wonder what he would have thought about "affirmative action" as it evolved, and about the state of American "family life" as it has evolved, and about gangs and hip-hop "culture". People should want to be assessed by the "content of their character" and not by race. Sadly, things have not gone that way. Maybe at some point the pendulum can swing back.

Re: “The Bay Area Has a Values Problem

The lack of "values" and deference to things that are truly important pervades every aspect of society. That's why the debate about "health care" never has anything to do with health....nobody cares about THAT. I don't like to generalize about groups, even techsters and hipsters. They reflect the values that we have all allowed to take over. And actually, I've meant quite a few whose hearts and values are in the right place, so maybe all is not lost.
