Webtacular World Issue # 163, January 15, 2017

Greetings Webtaculators! Enjoy the last few days with Barack Obama as President of the United States. Also, since our future requires it, try to remember these words:

And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”

Have a wonderful MLK weekend. On to the news.
