Irony Is Dead: MLK Day Edition

Wrap your head around this one: MLK Day has been designated a “make-up day” in some schools in the southern United States, so instead of taking part in celebrations of Dr. King’s life and reflecting on his legacy and unfinished work, students will instead go to school, like any other school day. The reason? Excessive snow, almost certainly due to climate change. (I lived in the south for eight years in the 1970s, and it snowed exactly once, for 5 minutes.)

One wonders how many of the school administrators that made this insulting decision would acknowledge the existence of climate change, if you asked them?
