2013 is the year that Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech turns 50.

A half-century ago, it was a radical notion that a black man in America could have any kind of big dream at all, outside the realms of sports, music and entertainment.

Yet on Monday, January 21, 2013, which is Martin Luther King Day, we will see the second term inauguration of America's first-ever black president. Talk about historical synergy.

Toward the end of this speech, Dr. King envisioned an improbable goal, "to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood."

Now, that's what I call a New Year's resolution.

2013: A Year of Landmark Civil Rights Anniversaries

In fact, this year there are several important civil rights anniversaries. 2013 marks, among others: the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation (1863).

150th anniversary of the placement of the Statue of Freedom atop the Capitol Dome (1863).

50th anniversary of the "I Have a Dream" speech (1963).

50th anniversary of the murder of NAACP leader Medgar Evers and riots in Birmingham after the murder of four girls at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church (1963).

the inauguration of the first black American president to his second term (2013).

And, as a reminder of the sometimes-terrible costs of change, 2013 is also the 50th anniversary of the a.ssassination of another young president, JFK.

'Don't ring me when I'm out robbing'

When officers picked up Stuart Gibbs hiding in the shed of a house he was intending to burgle, they checked his phone for any potential clues. They could hardly believe their luck when they saw a message sent to a friend two hours earlier which said: "Iíve told you 20 times Ė donít ring me when Iím out robbing." The 24-year-old father of two was jailed for 18 months at Leicester Crown Court after admitting attempted burglary. He also pleaded guilty to a string of other offences including dangerous driving, driving when disqualified, handling stolen goods and possessing cannabis. The court was told that officers were called to the house in Leicester after a neighbour reported seeing two men in the garden. They arrived to find nothing had been taken but a back-door window had been smashed, causing about $A600 damage.



"Iíve told you 20 times Ė donít ring me when Iím out robbing."

Just because Obama got elected doesn't mean this is a reality, in fact:
