business news in context, analysis with attitude

I went back this weekend to watch the speech that Robert F. Kennedy gave on April 4, 1968, when he informed an audience in Indianapolis of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - words that would at least help keep the peace in that city even as riots erupted elsewhere in the country.  It is a little more than 52 years ago that Kennedy spoke there, but the sentiments seem timeless and the words timely.

In those brief comments, Kennedy urged the nation "to "dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and to make gentle the life of this world."

I share it with you in the same way that I shared it with my kids.
