Martin Luther King, Jr., wants to make you rich!-- I clicked on a link in an e-mail, promising me great wealth from a home business. And when I got to the part describing the company (it's still not clear to me what they sell, I mean the actual technology of it, but it's telecommunications) I was startled to see a clip of Martin Luther King, Jr. What's the connection? It seems that his face and gestures have become just another fungible icon for "freedom" of any sort, including the "freedom" of making money from home. Somehow, I don't think that's what he was talking about.
