Taking Monday On

Posting will be light between now and Tuesday as we’ll be observing Monday’s King Day of Service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who would have turned 80 yesterday.

If you’d like to do some volunteering to mark the occasion, or if you’re hosting a service event and need volunteers, President-elect Obama has provided a handy-dandy database of service opportunities at the recently launched USAservice.org. The database is searchable by location and date, and includes events this weekend as well as ones on Monday. And MLKday.gov is hosting a similar database as well, although you have to do a little digging to find the advanced search option that lets you refine your query by zip code, interest, and so forth.

So have a great long weekend, however you spend it. We’ll be up to our usual tricks starting Tuesday morning.
