but it does make sense that certain logo's are used only for certain zones. Just thin og the .cn suffix having this type of logo , that would be polictally incorrect dont you think so ??

I understand for things like Independence Day, but Martin Luther King? I'm not sure...

I'm living in Belgium and I can see the logo on Google.com. Mind you that I am using Google Web Accelerator... so I don't think you're completely correct about what you said ;)

Am I the only one in seeing the irony of MLK being between the OG?

Well, here in the US, we see foreign holidays, such as the Chinese New Year and Bastille Day. Interesting to note that the foreign ones get imported, but the local, American days aren't shown to the rest of the world.

I have seen it in Denmark, not using the web accelerator.

I guess it all depends how relevent they are to the rest of the world, (though i think that MLK is more relevant globaly than Bastille Day) The American Civil rights issues are considered to be too american i guess (cant see it in the UK)... I wonder who gets to decide.

BTW – i think that rick was alluding to the OG as in (google.co.uk/search?&q=Ori ...)

Can you tell me what Marin Luther's brother and sister name. I have reviewed several books and can't find there name. Also, what is the occupation his mother had.
