Housekeeping: Martin Luther King Day

housekeeping martin luther king day

Hey there B and B. Just checking in here to let you know we are off on Monday to celebrate/recognize Martin Luther King Day.

We'll be back Tuesday with the usual shenanigans. In the meantime, take 'er easy.

Also, while you're here, allow me to write a note on car reviews -- yes, we are half a month into 2023 (almost) but you will still see some 2022s reviewed over the next month or two. In some cases, I drove the car a while ago and took my time getting around to the write-up -- mea culpa. Reviews are time-consuming (even when the word count is low) and I often get pulled away to work on more pressing things.

That said, some of the cars I drove recently, as recently as last week, are 2022s. This is in part because the craziness of the industry meant that 2022 MY cars have been hanging around in the press fleet for a while -- and in part, because sometimes OEMs leave cars from the previous MY in the fleet for a while if there are few or no changes for the next model year.

I mention this to forestall any whining in the comments about reviewing a 2022 in 2023. 2022s are still on dealer lots in some cases, anyway. Just bear with us, we'll soon be all 2023 all the time.

Thanks for reading and see you Tuesday.

    You have taken the opportunity to impose your views and suggest a debate on your world view. I choose to keep the topic automotive.

      So sorry about 'imposing my views'. I thought I was simply offering an alternative perspective to pig iron's usual dog whistles.

    Iconic photo:

    We typically get the cropped version. The above version is uncropped.

    Look at the bottom left: looks like the women's cleaning crew and the hipsters and Feds did not hear the rifle shot that 'killed' MLK up there on the second floor. They all look like they are on coffee break.

    Our government attempts to keep us divided, hating, and scared with the aid of sellouts, bribed and controlled folks, and brainwashed minions. It appears that the vast majority of horrific happenings -- such as the Manson murders and countless assassinations -- were just 'made for TV' movies.

    Fine paper on the real MLK:

    i see sleepy joe didn't miss an opportunity to push racial divide, hate, anti cop stupidity on MLK day. Old shoot em the leg Joe proving once again he is the dumbest person to ever hold the office. Go ahead mr president, tell us you have never had any training with a firearm without telling us you have never had any training with a firearm. Better watch your back brandon, your own people keep "finding" classified documents. The tide has turned.
