Comment:        RE: SHK 15.0262 Hamlet in PowerPoint

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")

EXPECTATIONS:
.  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."

Cheers,
