To make sure all Americans remember, Google has a special logo, aka Google Doodle, showcasing the event.

They placed Obama's image on the podium instead of MLKJ. Google images for him. MLKJ's ears did not stick off his head like that, especially at the top where they progress back in toward his skull, but Obama's do. It "appears" to be a subtle, yet political, attempt to connect the two. In my opinion that is insulting to the King family, since it is not cherishing his speech and its purpose. Instead it is an advertisement, whether intended or not, for the Obama administration.

As a kid watching the speech in school every year, I was always struck by how short and 'sticky-out' MLKs ears were. His ears always reminded me of how mine looked when wearing a baseball cap (I have 'sticky-out ears...but they are quite tall) and that impression had always stuck with me.

It is a good gesture on the part of Google to recognize and honor MLK with Doodles
