I Have a Dream

Ringing Endorsement

“From the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire, let freedom ring. From the mighty mountains of New York, let freedom ring. From the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania, let freedom ring. But not only that: Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968), from the "I Have a Dream" speech, Aug. 28, 1963

Editorial Comment: Step, up, New Hampshire.

  1. From Guido Stempel:

    There is an old Abbott and Costello routine:
    (Knock on the door)
    Abbott: Who is it?
    Voice from outside: Freedom
    Abbott: Let him in.
    Costello: No
    Abbott: Why not:
    Costello: Let Freedom ring.
