day of service

as most folks know, MLK Jr's birthday has become a day of national service for much of america. in the past, i've always had to work on that day. this year, i'm off AND a website has been created to match people with all kinds of service in their area. this website is brilliant. i encourage you to check it out, even if you have to work on monday, just to see how organized and easy it is to volunteer these days.

melvin and i (and i think our friend ben, too) are doing a neighborhood clean up with a great local organization that introduces young dealers and gang members to people who used to be in their shoes and have turned their lives around. hopefully it will be a little warmer? :(
