Letter from a Birmingham Jail

I have to appreciate this post on Coding Horror, But You Did Not Persuade Me. It references The Last King of Scotland which I really liked and Google's penchant to test 41 shades of blue (which I do not like).

It got me to read something I've known of but never read, Martin Luther King Jr.'s Letter from a Birmingham Jail.

"I re-read Letter from a Birmingham Jail every year because I believe it is the single best persuasive essay I've ever read. It is remarkably persuasive without ever resorting to anger, incivility, or invective. Read it now."

I agree, it's really amazing. I'm not sure how I managed to graduate high school without reading it.
