Falk Honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I love America, because in spite of politicians doing things for political reasons, this is still a land of freedom and opportunity. The City of Madison and Dane County give out The Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. Awards once a year.
Nomination Form (pdf) The inscription on the Dane County Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Recognition Award reads: For effort as a leader in Dane County, and for exemplifying the true legacy of Dr. King. Please describe how your candidate/nominee satisfies this description.
Eligible individuals must be a resident of Dane County and from this pool of thousands of worthy individuals, a few are nominated for recognition. A government committee then selects one or two who they believe most exemplify the true legacy of Dr. King. Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk announces the 2006 winners.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Award Winners “I am delighted to announce that Paul Kusuda and Jessica Doyle were selected as joint-recipients of the 2006 Dane County Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Recognition Award. These individuals work tirelessly, in many capacities, to provide inspiration and guidance and to share their personal knowledge with so many in our community who find obstacles in the way of their hopes and dreams,” said Falk.
I am ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. would be thrilled that an award named in recognition of his accomplishments, will be given by Kathleen Falk, a white female politician, to Jessica Doyle, the white female wife of the white male Governor. The very same Democratic Governor who recruited Falk to run for Attorney General against the Democratic incumbent. The beautiful thing about America is that anyone, regardless of race, can achieve award winning success.
