Wise Words From…
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I usually include a quote at the end of the Mash-Up, but today, I will lead with one from MLK:

I especially like Key Point #3.
My wife, Melissa, and I hunkered down on this past snowy weekend and went nowhere. Lots of reading in front of the fire. A few great movies. My favorite this weekend: The Courier, starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
It’s a spy-thriller, based on the true story of British businessman Greville Wynne. British and American spies recruit Wynne to act as a courier to shuttle secrets out of the USSR, delivered to him by Soviet officer Oleg Penkovsky (Merab Ninidze). This happens in 1961 in the months leading up to the Cuban Missile Crisis.
