Bruce Fenton's fears for Dr. King's speech come too late... Julia
Keller's wonderful column "Killing me Microsoftly with PowerPoint" in
the Chicago Tribune of 5 January 2003 included this sad passage:
I HAVE A DREAM: A PowerPoint presentation by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
SOME OF MY DREAMS:
. We achieve a level playing field.
. The glory of the Lord becomes visible.
STRATEGY FOR REALIZING DREAMS:
. Must rely on faith.
. Must stick together.
. Need to pray a lot.
. May have to go to jail.
. Must use catch phrase, "Let Freedom Ring."
(Cut to MP3 track of "My Country 'Tis of Thee")
. Freedom rings in a broad range of places.
. Will speed day of racial and religious harmony.
. Day will include a sing-a-long.
. Singers: Black men, white men, Jews, Gentiles, Protestants, Catholics.
. Song of choice: old Negro spiritual.
. Song's inspirational tagline:
-- "Thank God Almighty, we are free at last."
