The full-page advertisement (Jan. 17) depicting a playground from a child's coloring book, with everything touched by various crayons - except the three children - will come to my mind repeatedly on future Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebrations.
The words printed above the picture said it all: "One man taught us never to look at a person's color." Thank you, Publix, for running that ad.
