This year Monday January 17 is celebrated as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (MLK Day), a U.S. federal holiday.  The day honors the person who was the face and backbone of the nonviolent American civil rights movement of the 1950s and 60s.

To pay its respects to King (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) and the struggle he led, Alaska Airlines flies one of its B737-800s in a special livery.

Let’s all try to do the right thing.  Deep down, I think we all have a very good idea what that is in most situations.
