The irony that City Council chose to fly the "rainbow" flag at King Plaza, a site they claim recognizes civil rights, is sadly lost with the fact that the City of Palo Alto does not recognize Martin Luther King Day (passed by the Reagan Administration in 1983) as a national holiday observed on the 3rd Moday of January and refuses to give city employees the day off in respect to Martin Luther King.
Apparently city council's civil rights concerns only apply to whatever bandwagon shows up in town that may fit into their dysfuntional agenda.
